Preserved Duck Egg Dilema

slade | Mar 26, 2003 10:28 AM

About two months ago I purchased preserved duck egg for the first time at a newly opened Asian market in Quincy. There were a veriaty of brands. Not sure what to get, I got the most expensive ones ($2.35). They were excellent. Just what I was hoping for. The eggs were individualy vacuum shrink rapped in plastic. The brand was Kindly and imported from Taiwan. I go back to get more to see that they aren't being sold anymore. So I buy the ones available which are cheaper ($.99), imported from China and the individual eggs are wrapped in paper. They were horrible. The moment I pealed the shell I get this blast of what smelled like ammonia. I rinsed it and tasted it and still I still get this strong chemically taste. I spoke to a friend who said that preserved eggs imported from Taiwan are the best. Does anybody have any idea where I can find the preserved eggs like the Kindly brand?
