Salt Cured Egg Yolks

Cured egg yolks have all the richness of fine cheese, along with a salty tang that comes from the curing process.  They’re equally at home finely grated on top of pasta or topping a tasty dessert.


  • 4-6 eggs
  • 1 cup salt, kosher or canning
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp peppercorns (both black and pink if you have)
  • 1 tbsp whole fennel seed
  • cheesecloth
