Century eggs


These are preserved eggs. No they are not really preserved for  hundred years. The process actually takes anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, and involves soaking eggs in a saline solution. Duck, quail or chicken eggs can be used. It causes the yolk of the eggs to take on a creamy, cheese-like texture, and transforms the whites into a dark coloured jelly.
