    Is anyone here familiar with balut? I asked a coworker and she said that the local market does sell it. I guess I had misunderstood and thought that it was a chicken egg, but she said that it was duck eggs only. Has anyone made balut? Aren't there different "stages"? Is it generally 2-3 days or 1 week or longer? Would it be possible to use jumbo chicken eggs?

    You really don't want to do this. But if you are crazy to try it, buy one and go for it. I am sure you can find a Filipino restaurant near you.

    Good luck and happy eating.

    It is a duck egg incubated until about 18 days. They have them at the local Oriental market with a big sign that says "There are ducklings in these eggs! Do not buy them if you don't want to eat duckling" [​IMG]

    Warhorse,

    So did you ever try it? How was it? I think it is an acquired taste.
