Century egg is also known as preserved egg, thousand-year old egg or Pidan in Mandarin. Century egg is made by preserving eggs in a mixture of clay, ash, salt, lime and rice hulls for several weeks to several months, depending on the method of processing. Through the preservation process, the yolk becomes a dark green or gray creamy yolk while the egg white becomes a translucent dark brown jelly like. Century egg is an acquired taste because it has an odor of sulphur and ammonia.
You may substitute the century eggs with meat floss.
