Salted Egg and Ripe Red Tomatoes

11 shared thoughts
I never was a fan of this side dish, until my father made some at home. We had lots of ducks then, and they seemed to be laying eggs more than we can handle; so my father decided to make salted eggs. Sure, some eggs were served scrambled or hardboiled (we didn't care much for sunnyside-up, lol), but my sisters and I found it weird since duck's eggyolks were almost orange in color. You know how weird (and picky!) kids can get my father resorted to salted eggs.

It wasn't an instant hit, but I gradually came to love it; I loved how the salted eggs weren't that salty at all and it was perfect with red ripe tomatoes...

Oh, I tried making them on my own (when I had my own family), but I couldn't seem to find fresh duck eggs as easily as chicken eggs here in the city. Or maybe am just asking for them in the wrong places. I guess for now I have to be content with the ones my SIL sends over every now and then.

For now. ^_^

I am not much of a fan of salted eggs, sis. What I love is hard boiled eggs and tomatoes ;)

In high school we were taught how to make salted eggs, too, but I wasn't interested with it then, haha.

Ako happy na with just the eggs and tomatoes... but my sister prepares it by mashing the eggs and mix it with finely chopped tomatoes and onions and a few drops of patis. The patis sounded weird, pero masarap din naman. :)
