Perfect timing, few days ago I was wondering what salted egg yolks were. Looks simple.
I hope you had a good Xmas and all the best to you and your family for 2012

I have made the duck eggs too based on the Flavour magazine -Catherine's recipe. It is already two weeks, so it is time to reap the rewards.
By the way, i have added a splash of Shio Heng Wine, instead of brandy, they said it will more flavour to the duck egg.

Anne Regalado said...

Mel said...

Whoa Sonia, good on you.lol! Making your own salted eggs. It's not easy to find good & fresh duck eggs here but it's easier in KL. Some ppl also making salted eggs with kampung chicken eggs. hehe.... Thanks for sharing and hope you're having a lovely evening.
Cheers
Kristy

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

ping, you need to get it from pasar besar (big wet market)..

wendyywy @ Table for 2..... or more said...

Truly agreed that it's not any cheaper than buying, but at least we know what goes in it.
The yolk looks really nice la! Good job to Sonia for preparing them so nicely and to the ducks that laid such nice eggs.

kitchen flavours said...

Balakrishna Saraswathy said...

The salted eggs looks so yummy Sonia:)

ICook4Fun said...

I love the color of the egg yolks. Nice and bright. I tried making it a couple of times with organic chicken eggs but the yolk is not as nice and I soaked it in salt water for a month. I have to try out your methodIt is difficult to find duck eggs here though.

ICook4Fun said...

By the way, wishing you a Happy and Blessed 2012.

Quay Po Cooks said...

Sonia, Welcome back!! My mum used to make salted eggs too but she has not made any for a long time. Your salted eggs looks so lovely. Happy New Year to you and your family. HUGS

Vivian Pang said...

We seldom have salted eggs. Due to health concern. Not sure what goes inside during the preserve process. With this simple recipe can't wait to try out. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend!

Shu Han said...

wow you made your own salted eggs?? that's amazing! May have to try this with chicken eggs though, it's difficult to find duck eggs, or rather, even if I find them, they are bound to cost a lot! ):

sean said...

哟,
做成功的时候一定乐开怀了吧!^^

好像把手伸过去你那儿。

busygran said...

Love the lovely colour of the salted egg. Can't buy such lovely eggs from the market. Been wanting to make this for some time but find it hard to get duck eggs from my market. Will probably try using chicken eggs!
Thanks for sharing!
Happy New Year to you and family!

Victor said...

Every year my mom makes salted duck eggs to use it for rice dumplings (forgot the proper English name). Duck eggs in Canada is very cheap, we usually make like 50 salted duck eggs every year.

Happy New Year Sonia!

Sherleen.T said...

Alice said...

The Experimental Cook said...

I Love salted eggs. Very much.

But I never knew salted eggs can be home made. This is a very good lead. I am going to try it.

Little Corner of Mine said...

Do you know you can make it with chicken eggs too? We made it with chicken eggs here. ;)

Angie's Recipes said...

Interesting recipe and nice clicks too.

Torviewtoronto said...

this looks wonderful lovely eggs

Jessie-CookingMoments said...

Hi Sonia, coarse salt is like normal cooking salt, right? In Sydney, we can get duck eggs from the chinese butcher shops & of course the asian grocery shops but the question is whether they are good quality of eggs or not. My 2 children don't like eating congee but my parents-in-law love them very much. They always eat congee with sweet potatoes.

I couldn't find duck eggs here. :-(
I love salted egg with porridge.

Lrong said...

Looks like a healthy meal... the yolk of the egg is so pretty...

Lori said...

Those bright yellow yolks are beautiful in the photo. I've never made salted eggs, but you have me so curious. A farmer near me can get me duck eggs in the spring. I may just try it!

Fong's Kitchen Journal said...

Wow.. Really thanks for sharing this. I did not know the process can be so simple, cos those salted eggs sold outside are covered with dark ash.

One storage question: After 14 days, if you are not eating all the duck eggs, I presume you do not boil them straight away right? Should I store the uncooked eggs at room temperature or in the fridge? Do you know how long does the uncooked salted eggs last? Thanks.

Ah Tee said...

Easy n of course, much healthier as cleanliness is guaranteed!! thanks for sharing!! I'll do this when the fresh duck egg is available in Market!! ^^

Kalyan said...

Just mouthwatering...looks so easy to prepare & delicious!

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Fong, I storing the leftover eggs in the fridge. This was my 1st time so I am not sure how long it can be kept.

Biren @ Roti n Rice said...

Yes, I remember my mom making salted duck eggs this way as well. I think it taste so much better than store bought ones. I should make some but not sure if I can get duck eggs here. Yours turned out beautifully!

terrie said...

I love love love 鹹蛋! i have to make these sometime soon!

Sharon @ Feats of Feasts said...

What a superb idea!! I recently purchased those black salted eggs and my they were waaay too salty for my taste. It's good to know we can homemake this.

Gloria said...

Sonia I love this and the picture is amazing:)

coconino said...

love this! Thanks for sharing!!

The Experimental Cook said...

Unbelievable something so delicious can be so easily made !

Jade said...

May i know after 14 days, when the egg is ready, we just want to have one or two. How do we keep others then, just leave it in the same bottle with salt water or how? Thanks. :)

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Jade, after 14 days you have to remove the eggs into other container and store in the fridge.
