Home Cooking Recipe: Taiwanese iron egg


Taiwan's specialty snack "iron egg", when it was first contacted, it was quite disapproving. It wasn't just a tea egg, it was black, and it couldn't go anywhere. But after eating the next one, it feels really different. It is very Q, very elastic, very chewy, and the more chewed it is in the mouth. Iron Egg is a famous snack in Tamsui County, Taipei. According to legend, a person selling salted eggs has a bad business, so the eggs are constantly returned to the pot. The eggs are blown by the sea breeze. The smaller the halogen, the darker the black. I didn't expect the guests to like this more chewy and more delicious black marinated egg.
