Quail Eggs

ChowSmith Mar 26, 2008 11:56 AM

I'd made deviled quail eggs w/ flying fish roe a few years back and they where a lot of fun, but the Asian market I go to doesn't carry fresh ones anymore. I've called around and found only canned. Anyone know where to track them down in the Baltimore region?

    Check Whole Foods. I can't swear to it but I think I've seen them there.

      Well, dang. I was going to suggest Super H Mart (I've often considered getting them there), but then I saw you wanted Baltimore region. Maybe check with a local sushi place and ask if you can buy a bunch from them?

        Super H didn't have them, nor Lotte. (at least not the one near us). Sushi bar's a great idea. thanks.

          Bummer that Super H didn't have them. I know I've seen them in the refrigerated case where they keep the fresh soymilk, and the mushrooms/bamboo shoots/etc. that you can scoop fresh, in the produce section. If you do find them, can you let us know your recipe (I guess you'll have to post in Home Cooking)?

        I've seen them at Dean & DeLucas in Georgetown but never around here (Baltimore). Does anyone know where I can find duck eggs in Baltimore?

          I just bought Chinese salted duck eggs @ HMart. Very interesting texture. Amazingly bright yolks. But unfortunately, cooked.

                had some coworkers from the Phillipines that regularly chowed on Balut (sp?) always wanted to try but could never get past the smell.

                my loss.

                  Balut is on the extreme food fringe. It is a full-term duck egg, almost ready to hatch, that is cooked and eaten -- feathers, bones, blood and all.
