Boiling Quail Eggs

I mentioned in previous posts that my sister's quail are producing about 20 eggs a day.  We are experimenting every possible way to eat quail eggs... here is our favorite so far - hard boiled.

Step 1 :  Place your eggs in cold water with a couple of tablespoons of vinegar (to help dissolve the shells) and a pinch of sea salt.
 2.  Bring to a boil, then turn the heat down and simmer gently for 4-5 minutes.  Stir gently to keep the yolks in the middle of the egg.
 3.  Add cold water and then soak for a few minutes to cool.  After they are cool, roll on the counter to break the shells apart - they peel easily.
4.  Serving suggestion.... a little salt and pepper, some fresh apple, a few sourdough crackers and some fresh cheese curds.  So good.
 5.  The perfect snack for a anyone....including the upcoming grandbaby!
