On our farm we keep over 500 quail. Every day, the little birds lay eggs, which we sell to local traders and to our guests. We do not just sell fresh, hand-packed eggs. We also pickle quail eggs with peppers or chili. But how do they even taste? What recipes are there? And do quail eggs have a positive impact on our health?
Quail eggs as a delicacy
The quail is the smallest member of the family tree of the chicken birds. There are about 40 species of quails worldwide. For over 3,000 years quail eggs have been consumed in the Far East and used as a remedy. In the European region, the natural stocks go back in part because of habitat destruction and illegal hunting.
In many countries, the eggs are considered a delicacy. Cultures south of the equator use the eggs as a markup for many street food dishes. But the western cuisine is catching up as well and discovers the eggs of the little birds for themselves. Cooks like the compact size of the quail eggs and for burgers they just fit perfectly. It can also be a peasant breakfast with scrambled eggs or an omelet. Quail eggs have been an insider tip in 5-star restaurants for years.
Delicious and healthy at the same time
No wonder, because quail eggs are not only delicious, but also healthy. What the Far Eastern healing arts have long known, has been scientifically proven in recent years. Quail eggs have many nutrients, essential amino acids, minerals and vitamins. The eggs also provide important biostimulators that humans need.
This strengthens the human immune system and helps with physical complaints. These include e.g. heart, kidney or digestive problems. The eggs accelerate the detoxification and purification of the body. In addition, people with asthma benefit from eating quail eggs. In spite of their small size, quails contribute greatly to human health.
Quail eggs from South Tyrol
With this approach, we also track the attitude of quails on our farm. As an EU certified company, our quail live in large areas with lots of light and warmth. Qualitative feed that is free of genetic engineering is used. Through the centuries-long tradition of our farm, we respect the animals and take care of every quail with love. In combination with the South Tyrolean mountain air, our birds lay delicious, nutritious quail eggs.
We process the eggs with equal demand for good and natural quality. Either the eggs are handpicked and stored unprocessed in packs of 18 pieces. These eggs are stable for up to 8 weeks. We pickle the quail eggs in vinegar. Either naturally, with paprika or chili, the pickled quail eggs can be kept long. The taste of these eggs is special and makes good as a finger food or party snack. We sell our products to local dealers or to guests of our apartment.
