Unlaid Eggs- 02.07.07

Yes, you read that right. Unlaid eggs… not tomatoes - the image caption from the NYT reads “DELICACY Unlaid eggs, from hens destined for the soup pot, being cured in salt at Blue Hill in Greenwich Village.” It makes me feel a little ill imagining what these are exactly… yet visually they are absolutely mesmerizing (oh the things i’ve been learning from Tastespotting)

NYT Excerpt: Mr. Barber, the chef and an owner of Blue Hill in Greenwich Village and Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills in Westchester County, had just been introduced to the wonders of eggs that are described, with varying degrees of delicacy, as immature, unborn, unlaid or embryonic. In plain English, these are eggs that have not been laid and are sometimes discovered when an elderly laying hen is slaughtered.
