The hardest part is the waiting. Salted Eggs are preserved eggs packed in salted charcoal paste or soaked in brine. You can find them at Asian grocery stores either covered in a thick, black layer of paste or vacuum packed in plastic. Commercial salted eggs or itlog na maalat are made by "brining" fresh duck eggs in mud made of equal parts clay and salt moistened with water. The salted duck eggs I come across here recently almost have the salted paste removed, wrapped in plastic, or vacuum packed.
