  • Make a thick layer of salt on a large plate.
  • Using a spoon, make six dips in the salt where you will gently place the yolks. Make sure there is still a layer of salt at the bottom of the dip (yolk should not touch the plate).
  • Crack each egg discarding the white and gently placing the yolk into each of the six dips in the salt.
  • Layer the salt over all the yolks, submerging them entirely.
  • Place in fridge for 48 hours.
  • After 48 hours, remove the yolks from the salt (they should be solid at this point) and place on a baking rack.
  • Bake in a 150 degree Fahrenheit oven (or the lowest your oven will go) for 2 hours.
  • Remove after 2 hours, allow to cool and store in fridge.
