Cured egg yolks

I came across this article in Bon Apetit about cured egg yolks. (Actually that link is to just the recipe).

Is this the new “it” food? Have any of you ever done this? If so, how did you use them?

Seen one? I’ve eaten many. They’re a bit off-putting at first, but only because they look like a Klingon’s breakfast. They’re quite delicious.!

Seems like a lot of work for a garnish.

THAT'S how the link in the OP suggested you use it.

"Finely grate cured egg yolks over soups, pastas, or salads as you would a hard cheese."

I know the egg yolk has its purpose in cooking ( custard texture , browning pastries and baked goods, thickening agent, emulsifier, ...) But would using as above (Grating the end product over food) really add much to the flavor ?

Just curios. Im not a big egg eater, so I wouldn't know.

I haven't tried it but I read about it here: http://foodinjars.com/2017/02/salt-p...ery-challenge/

Good egg yolks are pretty flavorful, so I imagine curing them like this would add a savory, salty taste.

Apparently it's another way of preserving extra ingredients. A lot of people are into doing that these days, whether as a necessity or for fun.

Doesn't it take a ridiculous amount of egg whites to make an Angel Food Cake? Seems I heard that somewhere as heaven knows I've never made one. This would maybe be a way of using the yolks, although it's for sure I'll never do either.
