Have you ever heard the person is such a bad cook that could not even boil water much less boil water with an egg in it? Boiling eggs is something that we do mostly around holidays, whether it is boiling them for an Easter Egg Hunt or to make deviled eggs for a holiday party. Here are some interesting tidbits about boiled eggs that I came across during my research. Hope you find these tidbits as interesting as I did.
- First do you know that you are not supposed to boil an egg because it cracks the shell? Cooking an egg at high temperatures can also make them very rubbery. Here is the correct way to boil an egg. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce heat to a bubble less simmer and gently cook eggs for about 10-15 minutes. Then gently lift eggs out and transfer to a bowl of ice and cold water. I didn’t know that did you?
- Do your shells stick to your eggs? If they do they might be to fresh consider using eggs that have been in the fridge for a few days. Lightly cracking the shell before placing the hot egg into cold water will help as well.
- Hard boiled eggs are only good in the fridge for about a week. So make sure you know when you put those eggs in the fridge.
Hopefully you found this info as interesting as I did. So tell me what you might have found interesting to you today?
