Merry Christmas to All!

A very merry Christmas! And now we go to duck eggs.

Washed duck eggs

As of writing, my duck eggs would have been soaking for 6 days already. Still a long 15 day wait before I can try it. Wait, what am I talking about?

One breakfast, I realized that one of the things I will be missing when I move to the US in January is salted duck eggs. I am sure I will be able to find an Asian store that will sell it, but I will have to hunt for it still! So I decided, why not just make some? 🙂 I googled it and it was easy enough. Of course, I don’t know how easy or difficult it will be to find fresh duck eggs in the US, but chicken eggs will work in a pinch too.

Soaking, weighted with a plastic bag of water

First, find duck eggs. Second, wash them clean. Third, prepare the salt water solution of 1 cup sea salt to 4 cups boiling water. Cool. Then soak the eggs for 21 to 30 days. You can check one egg by boiling it for 20 minutes and tasting it, and seeing if it needs more soaking, or you can just cook it when you are happy with it 🙂

I will update this post once I have tried the egg!
