Anything you'd do with a chicken egg, just that there's a lot more egg. I'm pretty sure they get sold almost solely for of their novelty.

Use it as you would a regular egg, except it takes a lot more time & effort to crack and cook it! The shell is so tough that its used for making ornamental lampshades!.

Sam Mason, a great chef and one of my co-vendors at the Brooklyn Smorgasburg market, uses Emu eggs to make "Luxury Mayonnaise". Looks pretty impressive!

We're still waiting for his Peter's report. Not an April Fool's Day joke to us pickle people.
