Eggs are one single ingredient used all over the World (except for the glacial caps mybe!), and people have come up with infinite ways of preserving them.
Tamago Miso Tsuke/卵黄味噌漬け is a popular way in Japan to preserve egg yolk in miso.
I decided to publish this very simple recipe as it could become useful for a tasty decoration!
-Raw eggs: 2
-Japanese sake: half a tablespoon
-Miso: 50 g
-Sugar: half a tablespoon
-Mix miso, Japanese sake and sugar well.
-Line two cups (narrow bottom and wide top) with gauze cloth (first clean it in cold clean water and press out all water). Pour half of the miso mix on each.
-Wash the egg and wipe it clean of water. Use it to fashion a “bed” inside the miso.
-Break the egg and separate yolk from white. Drop the Egg yolk (only!) inside the miso bed. Cover with cellophane paper and leave inside the refrigeartor for 2 days.
-After the first two days take the cup out and turn the egg yolk over delicately with a spoon. Leave in the fridge for three~four more days.
It should be ready by then!
It can be safely preserved inside a tightly closed tupperware inside the fridge for up to ten days!

that sounds lovely, i’ll have to try it – never came across it in japan, but looks delicious
I’m glad to have pleased you!
That is absolutely beautiful. How would you then use the preserved egg?
I basically would serve it on top of a savoury salad as an appetizer!
What a beautiful color it has!
