It is not just about cracking an egg – its a lifestyle!
Quail eggs are delicate little things. They break easily and when they do the shell can easily disintegrate in with the contents, leaving you with an inedible mess.
So you want to enjoy quail eggs and keep your fingers? Here is how to do it.
Take a sharp serrated knife and rest it firmly against the wide end of the egg.
Slowly cut into the shell.
The top should come right off, hopefully without too much shell getting into the contents.
Any little pieces of shell can be removed that this point with the tip of the knife.
And out we go…
An opened quail egg – shell free.
Now you know…get cracking!
And don’t forget to compost the egg shells or into the worm farm – a great source of calcium in both.
