龜蛋 Let's eat 龜蛋!~

It's when someone is called a 龜蛋.

龜蛋 in Chinese is a turtle egg which led me to wonder if turtle eggs were edible!

After looking it up on the net, they are edible!!

Turtle eggs look like white Ping-Pong balls varying in shape and the shell is soft which is totally different to what I thought it would be!

The interesting thing is that albumin the white part of the egg does not coagulate (solidify) when cooked only the yolk part does.

It would be difficult knowing if the egg was cooked properly if it doesn’t harden!!

In costa rica, people usually eat the turtle eggs with lemon and salt.
Hopefully I will get a chance to try it one day!
