A few months ago, Farmer Z informed his members he was changing over to ducks rather than chickens for eggs. This week I get to try some!
Look how much bigger they are than chicken eggs! (Farmer Z’s duck eggs on the left, grocery store chicken eggs on the right.)
Thankfully, Aandwsayre sent me some links on duck eggs vs. chicken eggs. When I read duck eggs were excellent for baking, I immediately thought of the freshly milled whole grain bread I make every couple days for my family. The recipe calls for one egg per two pounds of dough. I think these two loaves are the most perfect I’ve made!
I continued to make bread, this time with a chicken egg, and look at the difference at the two batches! (two loaves on the left made with Farmer Z’s duck egg and two loaves on the right made with a store-bought chicken egg)
