In Asia salted duck eggs are widely served on the table and they are used as an important ingredient in producing of Chinese traditional Mid Autumn mooncakes. The yolk is prized and is used in Chinese mooncakes to symbolize the moon. We mostly use salted duck eggs in rice congee. My wife told me she will be salting chicken eggs, has anyone ever tried this? She was telling me they can last for up to 6 months but I have also heard that they can be edible for years? I was told they taste similar to quail eggs but are larger.
