  • 4-5 cups water
  • 1 dozen duck eggs
  • 500 gr salt


  • Grab a large pot and mix the salt and water.

  • While boiling, stir until all the salt has dissolved and salt crystals start to form on the side of the pot.
  • Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  • Grab a large glass jar and place your duck eggs inside carefully. Make sure the eggs don't crack as you do this.
  • Slowly pour in the salt water until all the eggs are submerged.
  • Cover the container with the lid and leave it in a cool dark place for 3-4 weeks.
  • If you prefer less salty eggs, you can take out one egg to test after three weeks.
  • Boil the salted egg in water for ten minutes until it is hard-boiled.
  • Remove the shell and taste to see if it is salty enough to your liking.
  • If not, leave the eggs in the container for another week or two.
  • Remove the salted eggs from the salt water and store them in the refrigerator until they are ready for use in any of your dishes.
