I bought a goose egg the other day, again from Borough Market (that place is truly magical!) Goose eggs are about the size of your fist and have really big, vibrant yolks. The yolks are also usually richer in flavour than a chicken’s egg, reportedly because of the goose’s diet of foraged foods. One goose egg is about the size of two large chicken eggs.
With regard to cooking my egg, I decided to do something simple and fry it up so I could truly taste the egg and see if I could tell a difference between the goose and chicken eggs. Overall it was pretty similar but I could definitely tell that the yolk was richer and thicker. It was a very tasty fried egg!
