The Tasty Jidori Egg
Jidori eggs come from a Japanese breed of chicken called Hinai-Jidori, which are known for producing eggs with rich, dark yolks.The chickens’ heritage combined with a vegetarian diet and free-range lifestyle, make for exceptionally tasty eggs that are best enjoyed when prepared simply. Jidori eggs are absolutely wonderful sunny-side up and eaten either on their own, or with toast. The whites are firm and slightly springy, and the yolks are high, dense and perfectly textured. Additionally, the texture of Jidori eggs makes them excellent for consuming raw*. Try them cracked over rice for tamagokaki gohan, or mixed with natto for a delicious traditional Japanese breakfast. Have them later in the day as a dipping sauce for sukiyaki, or even as a topping for a bowl of gyudon. Jidori eggs are sure to brighten any recipe where eggs are featured!
*Please note there is always a risk of salmonella when consuming raw eggs or poultry; Jidori eggs are no exception to this. Consume raw at your own risk!
