March 30th, 2016

Someone asked on Monday whether or not the turkeys are laying – YES!!! I’m actually drowning in turkey eggs, which isn’t bad because they’re delicious!

Turkey eggs are beautiful, large, slightly pinkish, and speckled. The yolks are huge, they pretty much taste like chicken eggs.

I’m planning on using these beauties for ice cream, when we have a flush of eggs I make semifreddo, because it’s so much easier than ice cream. This recipe from Food 52 I usually use as a starting point.

What’s your favorite way to enjoy extra eggs?

Mr Chiots has strict instructions to monitor closely and take pictures if necessary. Of course it could end up being nothing, turkeys are notorious for not being good at fertilizing eggs.

Are you eagerly anticipating anything at the moment?
