Found this recipe on appetiteforchina.com - check it out, there are some beautiful pictures of these! Anyway, the poster said that they're used in place of high energy snacks, like trail mix.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Put eggs in a medium-sized pot with enough water to cover the eggs.
- 2Bring water to boil, then lower heat to simmer for 3 minutes.
- 3Remove eggs from heat and allow them to cool a bit before handling(running them under cold water does the trick quickly.).
- 4Take the back of a knife and crack eggs evenly all around.
- 5Return eggs to the pot and add the rest of the ingredients.
- 6Bring liquid to boil again, then simmer for 1 to 3 hours, longer for a more intense flavor and color, adding water if level gets too low.
- 7Remove from heat, and serve as a snack or addition to rice or noodles.
