Ostrich Eggs


#1


Has Anyone ever eaten one of these? I snapped this at a produce stand outside of Escondido CA this morning when I was picking up some oranges (Ostrich farm was nearby). I was tempted to get one but for $22 bucks I decided against it before I got some feedback.

The lady at the stand said one of these bad boys is about 2 dozen eggs worth all by itself. Crazy. They were selling Emu eggs as well, for $16.

That is fuckin’ bad-ass.

NOM NOM NOM. Imagine cracking that b-i-t-c-h! (For the 13-17 year olds had to spell it out, they won’t know what it means)

Yeah that’s what I was thinking too. It got to the point where I wanted to try it for the novelty of it.

Was this a farmers market? I would love to try one but i have never seen them at the farmers market here in Del Mar

Definately do it.

And snap pictures as you make a huge omelette. It’ll probably taste different to a chicken egg.

My dad used to buy one of those just for the heck of it. I remembered him having to use a saw to crack it open lol
