How To Boil a Goose Egg

Boiling a goose egg is not too much different than boiling a regular chicken egg. The only real difference is the size. A goose egg is about two to three times bigger than your typical regular sized chicken egg. A goose egg is a great form of nutrition! A boiled goose egg will have about 20 grams of protein, and is loaded with iron and vitamin A. They are great to eat for everyone, except those that have a high cholesterol level. Most goose eggs have about 1227mg of cholesterol, which is 409% of a daily nutritional value! So if you are trying to watch your high cholesterol, then boiling a goose egg might not be the best thing for you.

To start, take your goose egg and wash it under warm water to remove any debris or dirt. Be sure to pat it dry with a clean cloth, otherwise the dirt that you do not see will soak into the egg through the shell. All you need is a large saucepan or pot, and of course, some water.

Now you need to decide which type of boiled goose egg you want to make. Hard boiled or soft boiled?

For a hard boiled goose egg, you place your clean eggs into a pot of cold water. Make sure the eggs are completely immersed under water. An inch of water above the eggs is adequate. Bring the water to a full boil over medium heat. You do not want to use high heat, as this will crack the bottom sides of your eggs.  Once the water is boiling, remove the pot from the heat, cover with a lid, and set aside for twenty-five minutes.

For soft boiled goose eggs you follow the same instructions for hard boiled eggs, except you let it set aside for only ten minutes, instead of the twenty-five minutes.

If your goose egg is on the smaller side, just reduce those times by 1-2 minutes. If it is on the bigger side, increase the time by 1-2 minutes.

Of course you will want to eat these freshly boiled goose eggs. The easiest way to peel the shell off is by holding the egg under cold tap water. Start by lightly tapping the egg on the edge of the sink to get a crease in the shell. Start peeling away while still holding the egg under the running water. The shells should slip off fairly easy, and "voila" you have officially boiled a goose egg!
