I meant to make marinated eggs several days ago but I had a mental block telling me that it would be too hard. It wasn't.

1. boil a dozen eggs in a pot
2. quench them in ice water
3. peel them
4. put them in a tub with a mix of soy sauce, Chinese spice powder (clove, cinnamon, anise, cumin), and water
5. leave in the fridge overnight

They're really tasty, and I have to stop myself from eating all of them at once.


I made these marinated eggs because I miss the tea eggs of my childhood. These aren't quite the same, but they're simpler to make.

Back in Taiwan, I could go to any 7-Eleven and they'd have a pot of tea eggs simmering away near the checkout. 😌
