A life consumed by food. A lifetime consuming food.
Back in January, there were some eggs in the fridge that were about to expire. Although I don’t often eat them, I do like salted eggs, which is why I took the opportunity to make them. Making them was no more difficult than online shopping, and most recipes are fairly similar. The recipe I followed said it would take a month for them to brine, but I found it took no more than two weeks.
The only thing I’ve made with them so far is a clay pot rice with chicken and mushrooms. My favourite thing about clay pot rice is the crispy browned layer of rice that gets stuck to the bottom of the pot. The egg tasted just like store bought, and since there’s always a fear about what chemicals are being put into imported foods, I would make them again. The only problem is that I would have to plan really far in advance if I wanted to eat them and didn’t have any pre-made.
