salted red eggs (itlog na maalat)

Wishing you a very merry Christmas...may you
enjoy the blessings of the holiday season!

salted egg with it's traditional red color
is best eaten with rice and sliced fresh tomatoes
Two years ago when I came to visit with my husband, we missed the opportunity to visit my mother's hometown. Pateros is a small town in Metro Manila that's well known for balut (a duck egg delicacy) and itlog na maalat (salted red colored eggs). This time, I made sure that we stopped by the old church there and pick up some of the egg specialties afterwards.

the salted egg store is located just across the old
church of  Sta. Martha in Pateros
