UK families dine on ostrich eggs
A UK supermarket is now trying something new - selling ostrich eggs for
those who dare to experiment with a nutritious egg 24 times larger than a normal
Waitrose supermarket has recently begun selling these huge eggs, which can
weigh in at almost 2 kg (4.4lb), reports the Telegraph. The newspaper says that
those hoping to "go to work on ostrich egg" might think twice and save that
particular treat for the weekend, as they can take an hour to boil.
This giant source of protein can also be hard-boiled, scrambled and fried
just like chicken or duck eggs.
According to a company spokesperson, these eggs are also very good for
meringues because the white is much lighter than chickens' eggs.
Waitrose has introduced the eggs, which cost Â£15.99, at 19 stores and hopes
to attract cooks looking to experiment. The eggs, from specialist egg supplier
Clarence Court, come from free-range birds on a Lincolnshire farm which only lay
once every three days or so.
