Goose, duck and araucana hen eggs
A tortilla coming up
Ready one side
Goose eggs and duck eggs are great for some novelty and fun. Beech Hill Farm in Barnet produces duck and goose eggs and the gorgeous blue and green eggs from the araucanas, a breed which originally came from Chile. These araucana are stunning birds, who produce a pure blue egg. With the purity of the breed lost here in Europe they are now a wonderful palate of pink, blue, green and olive.
If you like your eggs, then be sure you'll love the rich and deep flavours. The colour is considerably more golden, with less white. I along with my gorgeous visitor today made a simple tortilla, with new season's charlottes.
Simply, boil some sliced new potatoes till just cooked. Fry an onion in olive oil for 5 minutes, add some garlic. Add the potatoes, onion & garlic to some beaten goose or duck eggs (I used just 2 goose eggs), add a handful of parsley and then fry in a little olive oil until cooked, invert on a plate and slide back in to cook the top.
