Clarence Court reports: [edited]
Eggs at Waitrose have gone supersize. Weighing in at nearly 2kg, an ostrich egg is roughly equivalent to twenty-four large hens eggs and can take up to two hours to hard boil.
Ostrich eggs have a distinctive, light flavour and texture, making them ideal for cooking. For the culinary-minded, that’s almost one hundred meringues or thirty-two soufflés.
Eggs are available in selected Waitrose stores during the ostrich-laying season of April to August.
