Balut

Ok. I hope no one is eating right now.

I live in the Philippines and there is a common and popular delicacy called Balut. This is a fertilized duck egg about a few days old which is boiled and served warm. To eat it, first you crack a small opening in the egg, sprinkle a little salt in, then tip the whole thing so the juice trickles into your mouth and you suck it dry. This gives a very tasty preview of things to come. Next you unshell the whole thing, rub a little more salt on everything and pop it all into your mouth or break it up into pieces first. Everything is edible, yolk, fetus and all, except a small roundish tough white part about 1/5 the size of the egg. This is discarded along with the shells.

All I can say is it's very tasty. And no it doesn't taste like chicken. Actually it tastes better. Personally I eat it with my eyes closed most of the time. :? I give away the fetus to others more willing to take it. I just can't stomach the thought... But ya. It's delicious.

I wopuld need to go heavy on the salt myself. Monkey brains are good with lots of salt and pepper.

That is very possible. However when you take Paxil.....your nuts are useless.
