Notes

You can but salted duck egg yolks only and it is available in Asian groceries vacuum packed which looks like this one.  If you can’t find a similar product you can buy the whole eggs with the whites but you will need to separate the yolks.  Some salted duck egg yolks are raw and usually is wrapped on a mud with grass, if that’s the case just boil them according to the packet instructions.
