Hey Rob,
Sounds like the duck eggs in the phillipines you let sit with duck for about 8-10 days then bury in the ground for a couple of weeks then eat them I thinkit was called Ba lute

The orientals eat century eggs, balots or baluts(aka hot vit lon), century eggs and penoy. You should be aware that the formula (salt, NaOH, Fe2o3, CuSO4, PbO, Tannin or black tea) for making century eggs includes LEAD Oxide (PbO at 0.03%) so I would not eat them. Salted Duck eggs are packed in clay that is 1 part salt to 4 parts moist clay from an ant hill. The eggs are packed with the clay layered with wet newspaper so they eggs do not dry out. After 19 days the cure is finished. The eggs are then washed in flowing water and boiled under a low fire. The eggs are then dyed red. They have a shelf life of 39 days at room temperature. Balot or Balut eggs are embryos incubated to 18days in the Phillipines and 14 days in VietNam. They are then candled to remove deads and only the normal embroyos are kept. They are then hard boiled for 20 to 30 minutes. Infertile eggs are removed at 7 and 14 days incubation and prepared as Penoy, according to the Filipinos. You can buy those eggs from John Metzer (METZER FARMS) in California as they prepare them for sale in the US Asian trade.
