Cured Eggs
Recipe type: Garnish
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6 Yolks
Replace the hard cheese with jam packed in flavor Cured Egg yolks. Easy to make!
  • 2½ cups kosher salt
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 large egg yolks
  1. In medium sized bowl mix together your salt and sugar.
  2. Next in a baking dish add half of your salt/sugar mixture and level it out.
  3. Next using the back of a spoon make 6 indentations into the mixture (this will be the nest that'll hold your yolks)
  4. Carefully add an egg yolk to each depression.
  5. Next slowly pour over the remaining salt/sugar mixture over each yolk until they are buried.
  6. Cover dish tightly with plastic wrap and place in your fridge where you'll let the eggs cure for at least 6-8 days.
  7. Once eggs have cured, remove from fridge, and filling a large bowl with water, carefully remove each egg yolk and dip them into the water to clean off the salt/sugar. Pat with a paper towel to try.
  8. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a well greased wire rack on top of baking sheet.
  9. Preheat oven to 150 degrees (or in my case, my oven only goes down to 200, so I cracked it open using a wooden spoon, this way the eggs dried out, vs cooking).
  10. Align eggs on top of rack and place into the oven for about an hour.
  11. Remove eggs from oven and store in an air tight container for up to a month!
  12. Use on top of salads, pastas, really any dish you'd like to brighten up the flavor!
