Pickled duck eggs: The perfect snack

A boiled egg is the ultimate snack! Pickled duck eggs are a delicious healthy snack for any time. Even more so when ready at a moment’s whim.

The ideal snack food should contain protein and fat as well as carbohydrates, so that it will not unbalance your blood sugar, and cause the chain reaction of sugar-high, sugar-low, and result in Hypoglycemia and sugar cravings.

About pastured eggs

Eggs can be Nature’s perfect food when they come form happy, pastured animals, that eat a good, nutrient rich diet. You should never try to save money by getting cheap eggs, as the nutritional value of the eggs themselves drastically changes from conventional to pastured.

Here is what a study form Cambridge University found:

“Compared to eggs of the caged hens, pastured hens’ eggs had twice as much vitamin E and long-chain omega-3 fats, 2.5-fold more total omega-3 fatty acids, and less than half the ratio of omega-6:omega-3 fatty acids (P<0.0001). Vitamin A concentration was 38% higher (P<0.05) in the pastured hens’ eggs than in the caged hens’ eggs..”

I also care about the well being and happiness of the animals I eat, or whose eggs I eat. Pastured eggs is the best way to go!

Pickled duck eggs are a delicious healthy snack for any time!

Pickled eggs make a wonderful anytime snack or an easy appetizer! Duck eggs are very much like chicken eggs, but richer and creamier. for maximum ease of peeling use eggs at least a week old. I like to boil my eggs only 8 minutes so the yolks are still soft. I do not use any sugar in this recipe, but the eggs will still taste great and will keep fine in the fridge!
