goose egg

A trip to the local farmers market yielded some lovely rainbow eggs and goose eggs too.

We’ve never had goose eggs.

Compared to a chicken egg, they are enormous. Β The shells are extremely hard, cracking them is a challenge.

We wondered what they would taste like?

BWAHAHA – insert evil cat laugh.

You silly goose – they taste just like chicken (eggs).

It is always fun to try new things – isn’t it?

See you later, Bye!

    1. Caroline – the Fluvanna market is open on Tuesdays at Pleasant Grove – I think the hours are 2-6. Right now, they don’t have a lot, but hopefully it will grow. The whites on the goose egg tend to cook stiffer – like when you fry an egg, but cooking with them, you can’t tell a difference. Fun πŸ™‚

      1. Thanks Kim, I like trying most new things especially when it comes to food! Will ride over there one week and see what they have. We’ve been waiting for the Manakin market to open which should be the first Saturday of May. They usually have a decent selection of veggies, berries, meat, eggs, homemade foods and sometimes arts and crafts.

      2. If you go 250 east towards Richmond, it’s before you get to the Short Pump area (I think about 5ish or so miles before that). Here is there link: http://www.chiknegg.com
        They started a second market this past year during the winter months in Goochland but it was on Wednesdays so we were never able to make it to that one.
        It is not a huge market but at times can have 10 or more vendors. The vendors there are pretty nice and generally have a good selection but some aren’t always able to make it because of other obligations but for the most part we have always enjoyed going. They will also sometimes have some sort of thing going on, like some one singing or dancers, animals and things for kids to do. Plus it’s a nice ride there taking 250 instead of 64.
        If you sign up for their newsletter, they will send a weekly email about what’s happening at the market that week.

      3. Maybe we’ll see you there! Also, on the way there there is a small antique store called The Willow Antiques you should check out. It is on the right side in the Maidens area attached to Hickory Notch Grill (haven’t tried them yet but plan to). πŸ™‚

  1. Hi Kim,
    This made me smile! I am always too cautious to try anything other than a hens egg, I should be like you and have a try! Sarah x

    1. Sarah – I’m glad you got a smile. I have my limits what I will try, but I thought this would be fun and it was. I don’t know if I will buy them again or not, they were kind of expensive, but I like to support my locals at the farm market. Maybe I’ll find something else new next week. πŸ™‚ xo Kim

    1. Yep – imagine they taste like a regular ole egg – whoda thunk? That old rusty flyer has been around quite a long time, with various and a-sundry things planted in it. I’m not sure what will go in there this year. I don’t think I have introduced all the animals. I kinda got a little superstitious about it at one time – not that I consider myself a superstitious person, but what happened was this. I did a blog featuring one of my animals and then the next thing you know he died. Then I wrote about another one, and that one died. And then it happened a third time and I got all weirdo about it. So, I’ve slowly just kind of put a photo up here and there. I now have them on the side-bar and I’m worried someone is gonna go…

      1. Miss Chairman of the Cat Census Board – all four of the remaining felines have their names and pictures posted on the right side of the blog. If something happens to one of them, I’ll hold you responsible.

    1. Staci – you got the evil cat laugh! I should have known that you would, since you are such an animal lover. I didn’t bake with the eggs, other than I made a quiche last night – they seemed to perform just like chicken eggs. I don’t remember – do you have ducks on the farm?

  2. Wow, those are some big eggs! Our chickens sometimes lay huge eggs with two yolks (then they give up on laying for a few days to recover!), but they probably look tiny compared to the goose eggs!

    1. Silly cat, That Cat is a miracle to be alive and making us laugh each day. Our furry babies really put up with a lot from us humans don’t they? Goose eggs were fun, I think my husband might have been just a wee bit worried about them though. πŸ™‚

  3. Thanks for the huge laughter you and your funny cat just brought me! Nikki even lifted her head from her bed, wondering what the heck is so funny! I’ve never had goose eggs yet but if I do now I’ll be prepared for a more challenging opening. πŸ™‚ Cheers, Gina

  4. Hi Kim! We have our girls’ eggs in the fridge right now. I love to make eggs pies with them-you know-that French word that rhymes with ‘sheesh.’ I tried to spell it and can’t do it. But you know what I mean. Our girls are getting old-they’ll be 13 in June, but still lay around 20 or so eggs during this season. They get to be hard to keep up with after a while-so we give them away.

    1. Ha Ha quiche – yes spell check said I had it right. I made that with my remaining goose eggs, it was awesome. I am amazed how old your girls are, just shows that you are giving them the good life. That is a lot of eggs, wish I was near by and could get some. πŸ™‚
