Why you should be raising ducks instead of chickens. Eggs are bigger and have more protein (also great for baking!) Ducks are more gentle to your yard and can withstand winter climates. I freakin love duckies.
This poached duck egg recipe with asparagus by Matthew Tomkinson is a fantastic way to celebrate the English asparagus season. The grain mustard dressing used here is also fantastic to use in salads and other dishes that could use a bit of an extra punch.
