Bel's Tips for Salting Duck Eggs

What you'll need:

1 dozen duck eggs (any breed of duck will work)
1 to 1-1/2 cups of sea salt
5 cups water
1 gallon glass or plastic container

What you should do:

  1. To make the brine solution, dissolve salt in warm water.
  2. Wash eggs thoroughly and put them in the container.
  3. Pour in the brine solution. Cover the container with a towel.
  4. Let stand at room temperature for 30 days. Turn the eggs every 4 days.
  5. After 30 days, remove the eggs from the brine solution. Wash with water.
  6. Cook the eggs by boiling in water for 30 minutes.
  7. Serve with fresh, sliced or diced, tomatoes.   Think of it as a salad!
