    My grandparents taught me how to preserve duck eggs. There is a reason they chose duck over chicken. Duck yolks are by far the richest and tastiest of all preserved fowl eggs. The Chinese, Koreans and Filipinos knew a thing or two about preserving eggs. When you salt the entire egg, whites included, you can mix the whites with ground pork and steam a patty with water chestnuts, chung choi and green onions. Top the patty with the yolk before steaming. And serve with cilantro freshly cut on top and hot, white rice.
