Old Egg

Today I consumed something called a "Thousand Year Old Egg" at lunch with Chinese co-workers.

"Century egg, also known as preserved egg, hundred-year egg, thousand-year egg, and thousand-year-old egg, is a Chinese Cuisine ingredient made by preserving duck, chicken or quail eggs in mixture of clay, ash, salt, lime and rice straw for several weeks to several months"

And it was not that bad!
