That is the only difference. It has absolutely nothing to do with taste, nutritional value, function in a recipe, or chemically that it will harm you.

I think it is you who is bringing religion in this thread.

All I said "Not if you keep kosher they don't", I don't see what the problem. Who ever cares about such thing will know. Maybe that is exactly why the original person ask the original question to begin with. Did you think about that?

And, No, it doesn't the affect taste, so what.

Note :- Don't read this at 6.30 in the morning when you are planing breakfast, especially when you notice that the scotch bottle is empty

Vegemite on toast now sounds pretty good.

Cool

I'm not sure about blood specks. I mean after all, there is blood in meat!
Once cooked I see no difference. Which brings me to another question.

I still don't understand about eggs in cookie batter. If the cookie batter sets out for 2 days and is considered bad. What if you cook it? I mean what can a bad egg inside a batter do to you after it's cooked?

I was just going to say that. I always toss eggs when I see a blood spot and I do not keep kosher. Just the idea of eating an egg like that repulses me.

And to be fair, I see this as a cleanliness issue.

The way I understand it, bacteria excrete toxins as they feed on your food. So even if you kill the bacteria by cooking, the toxins still remain.

I loved this one. My mom, who grew up raising eggs, used to tell me it was a fertilized egg and toss it, which in later years I found funny realizing that there are cultures that actually like eggs with a partially formed chick in them. I doubt anyone who ever was truly hungry threw away an egg with a speck of blood in it. The fact is, I cannot remember the last time I even saw one! It is like eggs with double yolks, you just don't see them as often as you used to. It was almost like good luck in our family. "Look Girls!!! Twins!"

Thanks, Guinevere, for the lesson ... I really have always been curious.

Yuck. I believe Andrew Zimmern on his "Bizarre Foods" show dined on partially developed duck eggs on one of his episodes. I had to look away.

That said, back when I was just a little sprout growing up on Long Island, NY, a local gentleman farmer had an "egg route", & one time mom cracked an egg into the breakfast skillet & a partially developed chick fell out. Turned her off cracking eggs into a pan for quite a awhile after that - lol!

Andrew is truly one of a kind. I have eaten a lot of unusual foods, but some of what he puts in his mouth just aint right. I wonder if he does that because he can't find a real job?

I have to agree, he is a nut.
