We used a small, flexible plastic bottle to separate the yolks from the whites.
This video shows you 4 ways to do this with chicken eggs. You can use either one of the first 3, as the last is simply not appropriate for the hard-shelled quail eggs.

- ½ cup or roughly 110 g light brown sugar
- 3 cups or 1 kg heavy cream
- ¾ cups or approximately 60 g dark-roast, organic coffee beans
- 1 organic vanilla bean
- 30 quail egg yolks (you can use up to 40 depending on the cream's consistency)
- ½ cup or 110 g (you can also use less) granulated sugar
An alternative method to ‘brulee’ the sugar (and the one we used for this recipe) is to use a kitchen torch. Just make sure you don’t actually touch the custard with the flame. Go as near to the sugar as possible and it will start to melt immediately.
