6 Most Useful Egg Tips for your Kitchen
We have six great egg tips. Here we go!
So what can you learn about eggs that you don't already know? Have you ever been in the situation where you have company coming, and you want to make a dessert. You have very little time and you everything you need...Except the egg!
1.If you are baking a recipe that only asks for one egg, then all you need to do is to make a mixture of two tablespoons vinegar mixed with one teaspoon baking soda. Keep in mind this substitution is only successful if it is just one egg needed.
2. Hardcooked eggs won't crack if you punch a small hole in the wide end before plunging them into the water. A sewing needle inserted through a wine cork work well for this job.
3. Hard-cooked eggs will not ooze all over the pan as they cook IF you make sure the water is cold when you start. Just put the uncooked eggs into your pot of cold water, bring to a boil then shut off. Let the eggs sit in the hot water for 20 minutes. Now run them under cold water before you peel.
4. If you have a pot of hard-cooked eggs, a quick way to crack them prior to peeling is to shake them in the pan you cooked them in. This should finely shatter the shells, and these shells should lift off in large chunks leaving your egg undamaged!
5. Got a broken egg sitting on the counter or worse that fell on the floor!
It is easier to scoop it up if you sprinkle it with salt and all it to first set. Next just use a damp paper towel and voila.
6 Do you have problems separating your egg yolks from the egg whites? Do they break more often then not? Using a kitchen funnel, crack the egg into the funnel. The yok will stay trapped as the white funnels through.
Be sure to be a good egg and pass these simple tips along.
