Waxed duck

When I was little, Dad and Mum used to buy this preserved ducks called waxed ducks. They were not really waxed but wind and sun dried. In order to dry them well, they are flatten like a disc. It is very salty and you cut them into little pieces. The savoury oil drizzled in white rice makes the plain a very delicious flavoured rice.

In Borneo, it is available only during Chinese New Year. They also sell these in Singapore, and in any where there are Chinese.

We do not buy them in the Chin Household. The water engineer doesn't like preservatives.
