How to make it:
  1. Amount of liquid may need to be adjusted by how much liquid the container can hold.
  2. Mix in a separate container so you can leave behind any extra salt sediment as you pour over the eggs.
  3. You can adjust the seasonings to taste, decrease if you plan to keep the eggs longer than a few days as the flavors get stronger.
  4. Best if eaten after 24+ hours, but before 1 week.
