Itlog na Maalat

This one is a request.

Make a supersaturated solution of salt in water by mixing salt and water. A supersaturated solution is reached when salt no longer dissolves. Soak eggs in the supersaturated salt solution for at least two weeks - the time could be less ... or more, Try experimenting, harvest an egg on day 3, then one on day 4 .. etc until you get the right saltiness. After two weeks (or whatever time you want), harvest the eggs and boil. You can dye the egg red if you need to be authentic.

A nice breakfast fare is mixed sliced salted eggs with tomato slices and hot steamed rice. Yummm ...
