2 Cloves garlic
½ cup Soy sauce
8 cups Water

1. Soak dried tangerine peel.

2. Place duck eggs in water to cover and bring to a boil over medium heat; then cook gently 8 to 10 minutes more.

3. Cool eggs thoroughly under cold running water (about 5 minutes); then shell.

4. Meanwhile cut leek in 1-½ inch sections and crush garlic. Combine in a saucepan with soy sauce, water, honey, salt and soaked tangerine peel.

Bring to a boil, stirring.

5. Add eggs and simmer, covered, 2 hours. (Add more boiling water if necessary.)
