Capelle aan den IJssel How exactly does one cure an egg yolk? And once cured how does it taste? These were just the tip of the iceberg of questions in my head when I read the article on cured egg yolks in Bon Appetite magazine a few months ago. I was so intrigued! Eggs are the most amazing food in the world, after all. There was no question about it, I had to try this. Fortunately, last week I tested a layer cake recipe (soon to come!) that called for six egg whites, no yolks, so I had an abundance of egg yolks on my hands.
