Century eggs dont look anything like the eggs you might be used to. Cut one open, and youll find an albumen thats brown jelly and a yolk thats shades of black and brownish green. They are considered a delicacy in China, dating back to the Ming Dynasty. Qianggeng Wu and Aishu Sun, a married couple who live in Chinas Changlong Village, show us how they use traditional preserving techniques to transform ordinary duck, quail and chicken eggs into tasty century eggs.

This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.
