You have never had duck eggs???? Let me tell you a story about duck eggs, To begin with you have to know my mother is the cheapest human being to ever live. Matter of fact my Grandfather and my mother invented copper wire by accident. They were fighting over a penny and each was pulling as hard as they could to keep the penny and the penny just stretched to become what is known today as copper wire.. True story, I would never lie! Anyways, When we were living in Florida , my parents had a winter home about 40 miles from us. My brother and his wife had come down for Easter. We had everyone over to our home. My mother brought potato salad. Luckily for me I do not eat any of her salads because she uses the cheapest salad dressing she can buy instead of good mayo. I do not like miracle whip type salad dressings. Now back to the story, my brother was eating a big forkful of potato salad. My mother who likes to brag about the good deals she gets and when she gets them, announces to the table " I got the eggs in the salad dressing for free" I asked her, to be polite, " Where did you get free eggs" She replies with pride in her voice " They are duck eggs" Still not concerned about this, after all an egg is an egg. I say " Where did you get free duck eggs" Knowing duck and turkey eggs are more expensive to buy than duck eggs. She says " well, Jean ( or someone I forget the name) and I were walking around the park and I found some duck eggs, so I took them." I said "you found a duck nest?" She replies, " no, I found them just lying on the grass" I asked " You find these often" she says" a couple every week" I say " in the same place/" She says " no, I have to hunt for them" I say" do you know how long they have laid in the hot sun"?" She says" No idea". My brother went forty shades of grey and green at that moment. I laughed my bottom section off! However, the idea of just picking eggs you find on the ground appalls me. Maybe you had to be there. but it was funny.
