Culture Flash - Sweet Eggs
I went on a boat trip last week. The organizers told us breakfast would be provided. Once I was on the boat I was handed a cold pita out of the package, a room temperature, squishy individual cheese, chili potato chips and a juice box. A local leaned over and said, “There, now you have had yourself a proper Omani breakfast.” We all laughed and he disappeared. I’m not sure if was kidding about what Omani’s eat or if he was making fun of the trip organizers. I don’t know if he was sure either. I mean, let’s be honest. I’ve been in a rush before and eaten a banana and a Coke for breakfast.
I digress. At one of my cooking demonstration trips (I swear I haven’t been to as many as it seems) I saw a new local breakfast that I have to share.
Grab a pan. Toss in oil. Toss in beaten eggs and scramble them quickly. When they are about halfway done and still a little sticky dump in a lot of date syrup. This is super sweet like maple syrup, but a bit stickier. Finish cooking the eggs. Consume. I couldn’t taste this because I am allergic to eggs, but I asked a nearby friend to describe it. She claims it tastes like eating a spoon full of Date Syrup. If you like your breakfast sweet try it out and let me know your thoughts.
