Itlog na Maalat (Salted Eggs)

Duck eggs are traditionally used to make salted eggs but chicken eggs work fine too. Salted eggs is made by soaking the eggs in a brine solution for about three weeks or more and keep them in a dark and dry place—preferably the cupboard. Eggs don’t cure quickly in cooler temperatures and its curing period depends on the climate’s temperature. In tropical countries like the Philippines, salted eggs cure after three weeks—and it takes longer in a cooler climate like Canada.

Ingredients :

  • 8 fresh duck (or chicken eggs)
  • 4 cups water
  • 1-1/2 cups salt
(Cooking Measurements )

Cooking Procedures :

  1. Place the eggs in a wide-mouthed jar (or glass) container with a lid.
  2. In a saucepan, fill in with the water and bring to boil. Add the salt gradually and stir until the salt is completely dissolves. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  3. Pour the cooled salted water over the eggs, making sure the eggs should be completely submerged with the water.
  4. Cover and store the container in a dark place for at least 3 weeks. (To test the saltiness of the egg, take out one egg from the container after 3 weeks. Boil the egg over high heat for 30 minutes (salted eggs takes more time to cook than regular eggs). Let cool for a few minutes and peel the shell and taste.
  5. If you like the saltiness of the egg, you may now take out the other eggs from the container and boil them. Let them cool and store in the refrigerator. But, if you want the eggs to be more salty to taste, you can leave the salted eggs in the container for another 2 weeks.

      Hi, pwede mo gawing 2-weeks kasi kung dito sa atin tropical climate 2-week lang pwede na pero kung gusto mo talaga ng maalat 20-day to 25 saka para mapadali ang curng period i-adjust mo ang mixture ng H2O at salt 1 cup salt and 2 cuos H2O (1:2) boiling time is 15-20 minute do not boil it for 30 mins madaling mabasag ang balat means magiging malutong ang shell ng itlog and use Duck eggs not chicken. the author is in Canada kaya ang recommend nyang curing time is 21 days malamig kasi doon pati na rin ang boiling time nya, pero dito sa atin yan ang tamang process 15-20 days and 15-20 minutes boiling. kung chicken egss ang gagamitin mo boil it for 15 minutes or less (12 minutes minimum time).
