Best eaten with preserved ginger (as in pickled). The Chinese love to put include Century Egg in their porridges (aka congee) and mixed them with lean pork. These days, you can get this dish easily in dimsum restaurant.

About this topic


Also known as preserved egg, hundred-year egg, thousand-year egg, and thousand-year-old egg, century egg is a Chinese cuisine ingredient made by preserving duck, chicken or quail eggs in mixture of clay, ash, salt, lime, and rice straw for several weeks to several months, depending on the method of processing. After the process is completed, the yolk becomes a dark green, cream-like substance with a strong odor of sulfur and ammonia, while the white becomes a dark brown, transparent jelly with little flavor or taste.
