Century Eggs

Century eggs are those individually wrapped eggs in the big dragon urn. When I was a child, someone used to pull my legs by telling me that the eggs have been preserved for a century, thus the name. In fact, if you see the blackish & greyish egg after the shell is removed, you would be like me, trust this person!

To learn more about century eggs, you can visit

It's very delicious especially served chilled! I also love having century eggs with porridge. Mmmm.....what a heart-warming breakfast!!!

I'd heard of 1000 year old eggs but never seen a photo - now having looked at your link,they look scary but I realise are an acquired taste. Fascinating post JC, as always.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
