Elsa’s organic duck egg with English asparagus soldiers

As the asparagus is ready now make the most of Elsa’s eggs for a real seasonal treat.

To make this really easy dish all you need to do is bring a pan of water to the boil, add Elsa’s organic duck egg and boil it for 6 minutes for a soft, creamy yolk. You should really use a separate pan for the asparagus, again bringing the water up to the boil then adding the asparagus once you’ve trimmed the woody ends, then boiling it for about 3 minutes. Remove the asparagus from the pan, cut the top off the egg, add a little sea salt and voilà – a sublime lunch for one.

It’s loooovly!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ps look out for us meeting customers at Darts farm this Saturday 23rd April.

Perfect Pickled Eggs

It’s been ages since we have had pickled eggs, with the sun shining and chance of a few picnics over the Easter holidays I thought it was time to find out My Mums fab recipe and make a few. So here goes:

1pt distilled malt vinegar

6 garlic cloves. peeled

1oz pickling spice

small piece of orange rind

blade of mace

Bring to boil and simmer for 10 minutes, strain and cool. Then fill wide neck jar with hard boiled duck eggs and cover with the cooled pickled vinegar. To hard boil duck eggs place in cold water, bring to boil for 15 minutes. Cool and peel.

Store the eggs for a few days until pickled.

Beer and crisps optional!
