Duck eggs! Our CSA farmer threw in a half dozen duck eggs today. What shall I do with them?

Sorry to disagree ... Duck eggs are not the same as chicken eggs. Please read the attached link

Custard. Ice cream. Custard sauce. I have three Khaki Campbell ducks and lots of eggs. However, not everyone loves them, with their big yolks and more viscous quality. The eggs from my ducks are so intensely colored that a hollandaise sauce is orange in hue! I like them best for baking.

As Lindley mentions, I read that duck eggs are wonderful for cake / baking. Enjoy.

Scrambled egg or omelet. Duck eggs are so rich and creamy!

Make pound cake. The larger, fattier eggs make the cake denser and sooo delicious!

I would soft boil them and eat out of the shell, with thin 'soldiers' of toasted bread.

Treat them as chicken eggs! My husband likes them better than chicken eggs when fried - says they taste richer. They are a bit more viscous coming out of the shell.
