  • We are going to keep the duck eggs marinate in food safe alkaline mixture

  • Let sodium hydroxide, salt, water do its magic for 15 days

  • (sorry, should spell like "bowl ")

  • warm the water so dissolves better

  • So, what this mixture become

  • I dont think there is a chemical reaction

  • What I do know about the chemistry of this is that

  • when you dissolve a sodium compound like this it stops being a sodium hydroxide crystal

  • and it becomes free ions of sodium and hydroxide and chloride

  • Free ions of hydroxide which are liberated by dissolving it which actually enter the egg

  • and then somehow they become part of the molecules inside the egg

  • when did you first time had it (century egg)

  • I had it when (Craig) Kao cooked it

  • Deep fried it

  • I am no long a century egg virgin

  • deep fried the egg with Taiwanese 3-cup sauce

  • feel the heat carefully

  • do it carefully

  • we do not want to cook the egg with hot water

  • We take it out after 15 days

  • put them in cling film, and keep it for another 15 days

  • than after that , take cling film off

  • take eggs out, wrap in cling film

  • A quick taste,
