Try a goose egg - fantastic for omelettes
  An increasing number of goose eggs will go on sale this spring as producers seek to cater for growing interest from consumers, retailers and restaurants.Like the goose, the eggs are a seasonal product only available from mid February to July when days start to shorten and the geese go off lay.

The countrys largest gosling hatchery, Norfolk Geese, reports that more of its customers are keeping back birds reared last autumn for egg production this spring.

"We have seen a gradual increase in farmers producing goose eggs, but I have never known interest like this year," says Eddie Hegarty, partner of Norfolk Geese and vice chairman of British Goose Producers, part of the British Poultry Council. "

From Cornwall to Essex, there are producers looking to increase availability of goose eggs. We normally expect the first egg on Valentines Day. Last spring was early and so were the first goose eggs, but with the wintry weather they could well be a little later this year."
