Mmmm tasty treat

In Chinese culture at the end of the school day various vendors race to the primary schools to collect buckets and buckets of virgin boys urine to take to their stalls and use to boil eggs.
 
yes the spring treat in China is eggs boiled in pee.  apparently there is a distinctive aroma so you do know what you are getting. 

It takes nearly an entire day to make this delicacy, starting off by soaking and then boiling raw eggs in a pot of urine. After that, the shells of the hard-boiled eggs are cracked and they continue to simmer in urine for hours. You have to keep pouring urine into the pot and controlling the fire to keep the eggs from being overheated and overcooked.

The people who eat them say they cure all manner of ills and don't create any new ones (ills that is!)  Not sure that I believe it!
