  • 12 duck or chicken eggs
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups coarse salt


  • In a pot over medium heat, combine water and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring until salt is completely dissolved.
  • Remove from heat and allow to fully cool.
  • Place eggs in a large container. Add the brining solution, making sure the eggs are fully submerged. 
  • Weigh down with a small plate or a plastic bag filled with water. Cover and keep in a cool, dry place for about 18 to 21 days.
  • Drain eggs from the solution.
  • In a pot, place eggs and enough water to cover. Over medium heat, bring to a boil, uncovered, for about 20 to 25 minutes or until hard-boiled. 
  • Drain eggs and allow to cool. Store in the refrigerator.



  • Weigh the eggs down by placing a small plate or a plastic bag filled with water on top to keep them from floating.
  • To dye the eggs, add a few drops of red food color and a couple of tablespoons of vinegar to the boiling water used to cook the eggs.
