The eggs in the front are preserved, century eggs. The process turns the egg yolk dark green and the egg white into a stiff, dark jelly. The eggs in the back are salted duck eggs which taste salty and sort of like chalky gelatin. I think that century eggs taste okay, but I really don’t like the taste of salted duck eggs. There is another kind of special Chinese egg called tea eggs which I love.
