Egg, quail

Egg, quail: These small eggs have a pretty dappled shell. When boiled they are a perfect mouthful - so good for canap├ęs - 50 seconds for soft boiled longer for hard.

When hard-boiled, they are easier to peel if not so very fresh - one (or even two weeks) is ideal - when fresh the whites tend to stick to the shell.

When poached the white goes slightly rubbery, but they are good a look attractive when fried. An omelette made with these eggs tastes too sweet.
