Ostrich Meat > Fresh Egg of Ostrich for Eating

FORGET heading out for brunch this weekend.

Now you can feed all your mates with one giant ostrich egg – which is the equivalent of 24 ordinary chicken ones.

That’s right, Waitrose is now stocking the enormous 2kg monsters, which are every bodybuilder’s dream, but you’re going to need a bigger egg cup.

Shopping at Britain’s poshest supermarket doesn’t come cheap, and you’ll have to fork out £19.99 for just one of these bad boys.

To put that into context, you can buy a dozen eggs for £1.75 at Tesco – so 24 would cost you just £3.50.

Ostrich eggs normally have 4mm thick shells, and cooks are advised to open them with a HAMMER.

Light and buttery in flavour, they take a whopping 50 minutes to hard boil and 10 minutes to cook as a super-sized omelette.

And, whereas a normally egg contains around 80 calories, the ostrich eggs hold a huge 2,000 cals – which is a woman’s entire daily recommended allowance. Gulp.

Waitrose’s eggs are supplied by Clarence Court and come from a farm in Lincolnshire, where they breed free-range South African ostriches.

The ostrich-laying season only runs from March/April to September, and the 27-strong flock are expected to produce around 2,300 eggs – hence the high price tag.

Waitrose only has a limited stock, but Londoners can also get their ostrich egg fix at Florentine, in Lambeth.

Fancy 24 eggs in one go? Head to Waitrose for an ostrich egg

What is the greatest number of eggs you’ve ever cooked in one go? Five, ten, a dozen? What about 24 – all in one egg. Confused? Let us introduce, the ostrich egg.

Ostrich eggs make up the equivalent of roughly 24 hens eggs and, as of tomorrow, will be available to buy at selected Waitrose stores.

Up to 2kg in weight, these Waitrose uber eggs are supplied by Clarence Court and come direct from a farm in Lincolnshire, specifically, a flock of South African ostriches (all free range, of course).

Ostrich-laying season typically runs from March/April through till September, and come the autumn, the 27-strong flock are expected to have produced around 2,300 eggs. Not a vast amount, you’ll agree, hence why each carries a rather weighty price tag: £19.99.

So, what can you expect if you do manage to get your mitts on one? Ostrich eggs have shells of (typically) 4mm thick, which means the best way to open them is with a hammer. Yes, hammer. Whilst they take roughly 50 minutes to hard boil and 10 minutes to cook omelette-style, they can be treated exactly like normal eggs: fried, scrambled, even baked in a (gigantic) cake.

Whereas one chicken egg contains circa 83 calories, the average ostrich variety holds a whopping 2,000; if you can chomp your way through an entire one solo, that’s a day’s worth of calories for women, and 500 calories shy of a day’s worth for men.

Light and buttery in flavour, their yolks are a rich, golden yellow and by many accounts they are quite delicious. But there is only limited stock available at Waitrose which means egg aficionados will have to get in their quick.

If your egg hunting mission proves unfruitful, put your name down on the waiting list for the Full English at South-East London restaurant Florentine. Their hearty breakfast dish consists of a fried ostrich egg with all the trimmings (bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes) on sale for, ahem, £65.

More expensive than buying an ostrich egg yourself, yes – but at least you won’t need bring a hammer to breakfast.

Where to Buy Ostrich Eggs in the Hudson Valley

For eggs big enough to feed a crowd, one local farm has just the yolks for you.

On a memorable camping trip with friends, Larissa Carson was proud to make breakfast for her whole group — four hungry campers — by using just one egg. No, they weren’t on the latest fad diet; she simply used an ostrich egg. The oversized orb is roughly the equivalent of about two dozen chicken eggs.

“An ostrich egg tastes similar to a chicken egg, but it weighs about three pounds,” says Carson, who worked with Highland Farm in Germantown. The farm, which was established more than two decades ago, has been raising ostriches for eggs and meat (“which is a lean red meat and tastes like an earthy steak,” says Carson) for the last 16 years. They currently have a herd of 19 birds, and each one typically lays 40-60 eggs between April and September, according to Manager Mike Ruffell. Eggs can be purchased at the Rhinebeck and Kingston farm markets or online for $20 an egg.

In addition to eating the eggs, many customers want to keep the shell — which measures five inches in diameter and has a thickness similar to porcelain — for decoration or crafts. “You can use a power drill to make quarter-inch holes on the top and bottom and blow out the egg, keeping the shell intact,” Carson says. The contents can be used right away or stored in a sealed container and refrigerated or frozen. In the fridge, they can last for up to three months. Carson knows of one woman who stores the egg in ice trays; the contents stay fresh, and she has perfect portions. “It’ll last in the fridge about week or so; when you’re ready to use, just shake and pour,” says Ruffell. “They’re fluffier than chicken eggs and taste great scrambled.” According to the American Ostrich Association, it takes about one-and-a-half hours to hard-boil an ostrich egg.

“People come up to us at farmer’s markets and say, ‘Wow, I bet that makes a big omelet.’ But there are so many other ways to use the eggs: quiche, frittata, mousse,” Carson says. “A pastry chef at Terrapin once used one of our eggs to make 170 brioches.”

If one egg just isn’t enough at breakfast time, this supersized version should keep you going until dinner.

It’s ostrich egg season and this giant British variety is making its annual appearance in selected Waitrose stores this week.

The eggs – which weigh a bulky 2kg – are sourced from a farm in Lincolnshire. They are said to be the equivalent of 24 chicken eggs and are on sale for £19.99 each.

They join Waitrose’s diverse range of speciality eggs, including Quails eggs, Cornish Blue duck eggs and turkey eggs, and are recommended as a centrepiece with toast or asparagus soldiers.

“Although traditional hen’s eggs are a shopping list staple, our range of speciality eggs make a lovely treat,” Jay Ledwich, egg buyer at Waitrose said. “Our ostrich or duck eggs are perfect for a big birthday breakfast or weekend brunch.”

While they’re ideal for feeding a crowd, shoppers should be prepared to wait a while when it comes to cooking time. The supermarket suggests 50 minutes for a soft boiled ostrich egg, or up to two hours for hard boiled. Getting into the 4mm-thick shell could also be a challenge.

Can’t wait to get cracking? The eggs will be available in the following stores until July:

  • Lincoln
  • John Barnes, Finchley
  • Richmond
  • Bath
  • Stroud
  • Salisbury
  • Islington
  • West Ealing
  • Oakgrove
  • Canary Wharf
  • Wandsworth
  • FulhamMarylebone
  • Oxford Street

Ten Things You Can Do With an Ostrich Egg

The eggs can be used to amaze and mystify children.

You’ve probably seen the display of ostrich and emu eggs at the green-awninged Roaming Acres Farm at the Greenmarkets. The ostrich eggs are bone-white, strangely shiny, and of unbelievable girth. In fact, an ostrich yolk is the world’s largest cell. Part of a group of flightless birds known as ratites (note good rock-band name), ostriches are native to Africa, but are now widely distributed among the continents, as the farmers’ market booth attests.

They’re not giving them away! What’s that purplish-black egg in the lower right-hand corner? It’s an emu egg, not nearly as big or exciting as an ostrich egg.

At $30 they’re not cheap, but ostrich eggs make great conversation starters, if you can get beyond the uneasy impression that something is wrong, in a kind of science-fiction sort of way. Call the cops if you see one in, say, Central Park, and a squad car will come to defuse it within minutes. Get caught with one in church, and you will be speedily evicted.

Yes, it’s very tempting to become an ostrich egg owner. But once you have it, what do you do with it? Here are 10 suggestions.

1. At an average of 3.1 pounds, ostrich eggs are 20 times the weight of a chicken egg. Break the egg, and make a giant skilletful of scrambled eggs. Sprinkle grated cheese on the top if desired.

2. Buy the largest frying pan you can find, spray on the Pam, and make a giant fried egg. Assignment 1: Cook the yolk through. Assignment 2: Cook it sunny-side up and feed it to a very hungry friend (you’ll need a very large spatula, too).

3. For target practice, throw the egg at a running ostrich. Don’t worry, you won’t hit it: Ostriches are capable of running 60 miles per hour, bobbing and weaving. Don’t get in the way!

4. Use the egg, or eggs if you can afford them, to “egg” someone’s house. Some suggestions for picking the house you want to egg: Charlie Sheen, Osama bin Laden, Michael Bloomberg, Leni Riefenstahl.

5. Boil it, paint it, and roll it on the lawn for Easter. You just missed it.

Don’t let the egg slip from your grasp, especially when you’re holding it as you lean out the window.

Where you can buy ostrich eggs, or emu eggs if you prefer, empty or gamete-encumbered.

6. Boil it for two hours, peel it, and make egg salad with an entire jar of mayonnaise (or Miracle Whip if you live west of the Mississippi).

7. Make sure the egg you buy is fertilized. (No! Don’t try to do it yourself!) Put it under your mattress and let it gestate for 20 days, warmed by the heat of your body. Break the egg open and enjoy the crunchy gestating fetal ostrich, the way balut is enjoyed in the Philippines.

8. Make a tea-smoked egg by soaking the boiled egg in five gallons of strong tea.

9. Boil the ostrich egg and peel it, then cut the egg into eighths. Use it to garnish a potato salad made with whole peeled Idaho potatoes.

10. Mount the egg on your wall, and invite all your friends with handguns to try shooing it from 20 feet away, but only if your apartment is that big.
