I do not like eggs. I think they taste generally yucky. I like stuffed eggs, with mayo, mustard, and a dash of relish.
However, I have always been curious about other types of eggs in cuisine...especially quail eggs.
I have seen them, but they were usually too expensive to experiment with. But the other day, my friend and I discovered a different market. It is not a usual market and it carries many ethnic foods.
We had a great time discovering rare delicacies and then I saw a package of quail eggs for $1.49. That was it, I had to try!
So, I took them home and looked up how to cook them. Hard boiled seemed like a good thing to do, so I did.....
For those of you who might want to do the same, put the eggs in cold water, an inch over their shells...
Bring to a boil and turn off and cover the pot for 5 minutes.
Then immerse in cold water for another 5 minutes.....at that time, they should be done! How easy is that? They are fun and flavorful and neat and tidy!
