Emu Eggs

Filed under: Everything Else — candid reflections @ 7:19 am

The Emu is one of the largest birds in the world (measuring in at 6.5 feet,) second only to the Ostrich.  The Emu is a flightless bird, native to Australia, and it lays enormous eggs, which we were adventurous enough to sample yesterday.

Thanks for the Emu eggs Grandpa and Grandma!

We almost had to get out a machete to cut them open!  Despite their tough shells, we were able to hollow one out and glue the end back on so you can hardly tell that we opened it.

This yolk, from just one egg, was enormous… are you sure those weren’t dinosaur eggs?!

They scrambled up nice and fluffy.

We found their flavor to be quite pleasant -more mild than that of a chicken’s egg.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some pictures from our afternoon of flying kites:

 

Thanks for coming over, we had a fun time!
