Since our quail started laying eggs we have been setting them aside. They are so tiny that it would take quite a few to make a meal. So, they have been accumulating and we have been admiring the pretty patterns on their shells.
As of today we have 22. Although they are small, that should be enough, shouldn't it?
They were not easy to crack. The shells were brittle and it was tricky to get them open without getting little pieces of shell in the mix.
As it turned out, 22 quail eggs amounted to not even a cup. Clearly this would not be enough.
So, I added five chicken eggs. Now I had about two cups, enough to scramble.
They were delicious!
I think we need more quail.
