"Salted Eggs"

Salted Eggs is one of my favorite Filipino food dish, but too much salt is not good for health, so I just made my own homemade salted eggs in regular taste,but if you want more salty just add more salt and store for 3 to 4 weeks, and keep in a warm dark place.(note:) making salted eggs are depends on a climate temperature, warm temperature is more better, while it takes longer time in a cooler place or climate...
                                                 My Homemade Salted Eggs
                                 (please watch the video below for making procedure)
                                                        all we need are:
                                        12 (1 dozen) large chicken eggs
                                        1 1/2 cups salt
                                        4 cups of water
                                           glass container

                                  wash the eggs to remove any dirt, combine salt and water
                                  and boil to disolve the salt(this is what we need for brine
                                  solution) set aside and let cool completely. Arrange eggs
                                 in the container then pour in the cooled water and salt
                                or the brine solution over the eggs.
                                    cover and keep it in a warm or dry dark place for about
                                   2 to 3 weeks...
                                   after 2 to 3 weeks take out eggs from the container
                                   boil the eggs over medium heat,when already done let cool
                                  completely the hard boiled eggs before serve,  Enjoy!
