When it comes to fowl eggs, the duck egg is one of the absolute tastiest.

Duck eggs are similar in appearance to chicken eggs, but the texture of their yolks is much more decadent and viscous. The deep, rich flavor of the egg is impossible to find in regular old chicken egg.

We get our duck eggs from D’Artagnan. If you’re looking for anything fowl-related, D’Artagnan is a great choice. Quattro Farms in Pleasant Valley, New York also carries fresh-farmed Duck Eggs. You can find them at the Union Square market on Saturdays.

Fresh duck eggs should “stand up” when cracked into a pan, because their structure hasn’t had time to break down yet. They keep for about two weeks if kept cool and for six week when refrigerated.
