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!

  2. In response to your comment on my blog Cindy:

    I haven't made ginger ale since we moved to the farm! I totally forgot about it! It's funny though, I've been thinking all week, I just need some ginger ale. I'll make some this week. This is my second cold this summer and both have ended with throat infections. My doc says it's because I have a low immune system due to the chronic pain.

    What's baking soda/lime therapy?

    I've missed our visit's Cindy! Thanks for the kick-in-the-pants.

  3. Here you go Audrey. Please go to today's post on your blog for my answer :)

    I have not finished my morning coffee yet. My brain is not quite kicked in to gear.

  4. Thanks Cindy! Sammy and I were discussing how long to boil the eggs the other day so I'm glad I came across this otherwise we might have had runny eggs. Both boys had hard boiled quail eggs for their school lunch yesterday.
