Homemade Salted Egg 自制咸蛋

The colour of the salted egg yolks as shown in this picture is the original colour of the yolks.  
I did not edit the colour of this picture ;)

I started my Salted Egg-periment on 14th October 2015 and ended on 21 December 2015. Don't worry, the actual brining days is about 20-30days only. Mine, took a little longer because.....

The first batch - one of the egg cracked on the 2nd day >.< 
So do check your eggs if there's any cracks, this step is crucial!

So I made another batch and wait again, but....

... the water turned mouldy. 
Probably it's before I did not boil the water.

These were the salted egg yolk from the mouldy batch. Looks good right? 

I discard's better be safe than sorry. 

This was the 3rd batch. This time, I boiled the salt water before brining.

Thanks to Wahyuni for the tips. 3rd batch, it's a successful one! 

I'm glad that I can finalised my salted egg yolk recipe now and use it in my cooking. No need to worry about what it's made of . This was my first salted egg yolk dish...
