After you look at them in the basket, then you wonder what to do with Easter eggs. Beyond egg salad there's delicious cured egg yolks.

Recipe type: Condiment
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 100 Grams Salt (roughly ¼ cup + 3 tablespoons)
  • 3 Teaspoons Demerara Sugar
  • 1½ Teaspoons Lemon Zest
  • ¼ Teaspoon Granulated Garlic
  • ¼ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Gram Pink Curing Salt (.2 teaspoon)
  • Dash of Cayenne Pepper
  • 4 Egg Yolks
Instructions
  1. Mix all of the ingredients, except egg yolks, together in a covered dish that will hold the egg yolks with a bit of space between them.
  2. Add the egg yolks to the mixture and pile the mixture up around and over egg yolks.
  3. Cover the dish and pop into the refrigerator.
  4. Everyday, for 10-14 days, take the container out and move the yolks around and re-cover them with the mixture.
  5. When done, the yolks will have hardened quite a bit. They won't be hard like marbles, but you'll notice that they have the consistency of Parmesan cheese.
  6. Now you can remove them from the curing mixture and just keep them in a covered container in the refrigerator.
Notes
I have kept mine for several months in the refrigerator. They'll continue to harden a bit more.
