Brebes is a small city in Central Java with population less than 2 millions people is very well known for producing salted duck eggs in Indonesia. The salted duck eggs from Brebes are the best. The way of making the salted duck egg is by packing each duck egg in damp salted charcoal and leave it for 7 to 10 days. Some vendors are selling their salted duck eggs unboiled with the salted charcoal paste still wrapping the eggs and some other vendors are selling the boiled and clean with a stamp on each egg.
The most wonderful part of the salted duck egg is the dark orange fatty yolk! Yes, I love it so much! Oh.. and I don't bother at all with the white egg part which is too salty and sharp for my tastebuds ;)
