So I decided to try my hand at making Salted Egg. Hubby thinks I am crazy but well for experiment sake, I am game for it.
Findings: I had a hard time putting weight on the eggs as my container's openning is small and thus I can't fit a small plate inside. The only ones that can squeeze through is sauce plate and that was not enough. It was frustrating then as a slight movement, I had to redo the whole process again.
If I ever try this again, I will layer the eggs, put the weight and then fill in the salt solution in real slow.
