  • egg yolks
  • salt, any kind as long as isn’t Iodized
  • cheesecloth

  3. Separate eggs and place the yolks in the divots (do not use a punctured yolk for this).

  5. Place the salt covered yolks in the refrigerator for 1 week to cure.
  6. Remove the yolks, dust off the salt and wrap the yolks in cheesecloth.
  7. Hang the yolks to dry, in the refrigerator for 7 to 10 days.
  8. Once the yolks are firm and easy to grate, store them tightly covered in the refrigerator.

You can grate them anywhere you would add parmesan cheese
