Easter is coming again………
It’s time to hunt for those multi-colored painted eggs.
Talking about egg, there’s a culinary tradition I miss quite a bit from my childhood that has to do with egg. Duck egg….. salted duck egg.
Salted duck egg?
Yes, that’s right! We, Indonesian (and also many Asian) eat salted duck egg.
The egg white has a sharp, salty taste. The orange red yolk is rich, fatty, and less salty. The yolk is prized and is used in Chinese moon cakes to symbolize the moon.
Despite its name, salted duck eggs can also be made from chicken eggs, though the taste and texture will be somewhat different, and the egg yolk will be less rich.
What is salted duck egg?
This year Easter Sunday falls on April 8. In my country, just as we celebrate Idulfitri, Christmas and many other religious holidays, we also embrace Easter.
Egg hunts for children, decorative eggs and chocolate bunnies are ready to color the celebration of Easter. Many hotels, cafés, restaurants and other places are tempting people to come and celebrate Easter on their premises.
Religious-wise, the Christian communities, both Protestant and Catholic, are ready to celebrate Easter with a series of services at their churches.
Easter can be celebrated in many ways and with many meals. What’s your choice?
This weekend, Christians around the world will celebrate Easter. One of the symbols commonly associated to Easter celebrations is egg.
Eggs and Easter have almost become synonymous. Easter eggs are special eggs that are often decorated and given to kids to celebrate Easter.
But how did Eggs come to be associated with Easter?
