The art of boiling and peeling an egg

The art of boiling and peeling an egg

You probably already know that eggs are very good for you – paleo friendly and packed with protein, good fats, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, zinc, iron, folate… the nutritional list goes on…

But do know how to prepare one properly?

Thing is, there are many documented ways to prepare an egg, but I am going to just cover one of the more common ones for you, one that many people seem to make a complete mess of (especially when it comes to very fresh eggs)!

Boiling and Peeling an Egg

1. Put your egg in a medium sized saucepan so the top of the egg can be immersed in water.

2. Pour in cold water and mix in 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate soda.

3. Bring the water to a gentle simmer and continue to simmer for 8-10minutes.

4. Drain the water and transfer the egg to a bowl of cold water and allow to cool.

5. Now tap each end of the egg on a hard surface until each end cracks and remove a small circle of shell from each end.

6. Put one end of the egg to your mouth and blow hard through the crack (circle).

7. The egg should now pop out the other end. If not, starting from the circle at any end of the egg, gently peel the shell manually.
