As we don't eat a lot of salted eggs, I salt about 5 at a time in a small plastic container.To salt the eggs, use whatever available sized container you have as long as the eggs stay submerged by the brine.
This lot was actually salted for mooncakes but I haven't got around to making the mooncake yet (too busy playing armchair golf !). Thank goodness I don't adhere to a strict festive calender ! Hard boiled salted eggs goes well with rice porridge.
1 cup water to ¼ cup salt (ratio)
large chicken or duck eggs
plastic or glass container
½ tsp szechuan peppercorn per 1 cup water (optional)
