What Chinese dish is made by aging raw eggs for months?
The century egg has been around for more than 500 years, but it doesn’t take a hundred years to make. Raw eggs (chicken, duck, or quail) are soaked in a vat filled with a combination of strong black tea, salt, wood ashes, and lime (calcium hydroxide). After weeks or months, the eggs appear dark green or black, taking on a jelly-like texture and a creamy, savory taste. Today, this dish is available across China, from restaurants to grocery stores.
