“A traditional delicacy of the Philippines. It is also known as 'itlog na pula' or red egg because it is usually dyed red. correct me if im mistaken but I think the traditional way of making this is by covering the egg in mud. We usually eat this with tomatoes, fish sauce, etc. I haven't tried doing this particular recipe though.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash eggs.
  2. Place the rest of the ingredients in a large container with a lid.
  3. Mix until salt is completely dissolved; let cool.
  4. Add eggs (Make sure the eggs are completely submerged. The eggs will have a tendency to float to the top. Use something to put on top of the eggs to ensure the eggs remain submerged once the lid is closed.) Leave in room temperature for 30 days.
  5. After 30 days, boil eggs.
  6. When cool, refrigerate.
  7. Enjoy!
