In my mother’s day, ‘instant eggs’ would have meant the powdered variety that came in a box, tasted horrible no matter how you reconstituted it, and was the bane of the rationing years.

These days it means UHT sterilised eggs which are individually vacuum sealed and can be eaten directly from the packet.

These are braised with soy sauce and spices, and can be bought at convenience stores to add extra nourishment to your instant pot noodle lunch. They are made in Taiwan and appear to last for months without refrigeration, although once the packet is open you are advised to eat them at once.

I sampled them as possible supplies for an upcoming trek in the wilds of western Tibet, but did not expect to like them. Well, like is possibly a bit strong a word in this case, and my trekking buddy hated them, but I have tasted a lot worse, and feel these might be very welcome in a tent at 5,000 metres.
