Quick question: why do you hate hard boiling your eggs? Because they are so difficult to peel, right? By the time I get a hard boiled egg peeled, it usually looks like I took a machete to it. I can run cold water over it, roll it until it cracks, carefully lift the shell to just below the membrane, and the dratted shell still comes off in chunks. No more!
We (I should say Jan) are now dedicated egg steamers! And if you aren’t convinced that steaming your eggs (instead of boiling them) will change your life, this interview will do the trick:
Joe, “Jan, what do you think about steaming your eggs?”
Jan, “It has changed my life.”
There you go. I know you are itching to know exactly how egg steaming works, so here are your instructions:
- Place fresh eggs in steamer.
- Steam for 20 minutes.
- Roll eggs in steamer to crack, then place in ice water until cool enough to handle (only a couple of minutes). Peel eggs. The shell will practically jump off the egg, delighting you, putting you in a good mood, and inspiring you to share this secret with others.
Your life will be changed. And when my wife’s life is changed, mine is too.
I told you.
