Ostrich Eggs
Ostrich Eggs Are Edible

Ostrich eggs weigh approximately 3 lbs., equivalent to 18-24 chicken eggs. The eggs resemble and taste like a chicken egg.

Compared to chicken eggs, Ostrich eggs have increased portions of polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are most desirable in our diet.

Ostrich Eggs may be boiled whole:

Cover the egg with cold water and boil for 2 hours, add ing water as needed. Let egg cool in cold water for 15 minutes.
Once cool, use a small hammer or similar sturdy kitchen utensil to crack shell.
Peel away the shell and egg membrane.
The egg will now resemble a large chicken egg and can be used in any of your favorite recipes.

Ostrich Eggs may be scrambled:

Scramble an Ostrich Egg just as you would scramble chicken eggs.
One Ostrich Egg yields 10-12 servings.

Ostrich Eggs in baking:

1/4 cup Ostrich Egg equals 1 chicken egg in any recipe.
The egg whips up smooth and fluffy.

Freeze what's left for later:

Ostrich egg can be frozen once removed from shell, then quickly defrosted when needed.

Helpful Hint - Distribute egg yolk evenly in an ice cube tray for easy removal and cooking.
