Japan has made eggs that smell and taste like fruit
metro.co.uk -- Feb 25
The humble egg isn't known for its tempting aroma, but that could be about to change as a group of Japanese farms has developed eggs that taste and smell like citrus fruit.

Yamasaki Farms produced the naturally fruity eggs by giving their chickens feed containing the peel of the citrus fruit, yuzu.

They found that the flavour and smell of the fruit is then imparted onto the eggs the chickens lay.

While we can't get hold of the the yuzu eggs in the UK yet, someone from website En Rocket taste tested them in Tokyo, where they sell for 494 yen for six.

To fully appreciate the taste, they sampled the eggs by making the most simple dish in Japanese cuisine: tamago-kake gohan, which means 'rice with egg poured over it.'
