Salad with quail eggs and hemp mayonnaise. Yes, these eggs can be used in the kitchen as much as chicken eggs: soft-boiled, hard-boiled, with a bull’s eye, for desserts or original noodles.
I had never consumed them but I discovered instead that they are also indicated for the prevention and treatment of some types of allergies and intolerances.
I find them commercially packaged in trays usually containing 16 eggs and do not have an exaggerated cost.
They only have one flaw: they are quite difficult to peel and break because they have a very hard internal membrane.
When I harden them, to peel them, I break the sides and then I roll them in my hands to crumble the egg shell.
Usually then I just need to take a piece of shell with the membrane and spiral-peel the egg peel.
As many friends know, I am experimenting with hemp at this time: from seeds to flour and to the fantastic hemp oil that I am taking every morning and I think that once you discover this new food, they will also become inevitable ingredients for you in the kitchen!
The uses of hemp are really many: we switch from fabrics for our clothes to a very resistant paper and my mother-in-law tells me that in the past it was also used as a medicine but in reality in Europe there are not many signs of its consumption in traditional cooking but to the limit as an aperitif or euphoric.
It has been shown by several studies that hemp seeds contain the proteins necessary for good health: they are rich in vitamins and fiber and have a very high nutritional value.
I purchased seeds, flours, oil and much more …………… .. and among the first experiments here is a hemp mayonnaise
