Yeah, yeah, yeah….. Dancing **
I can now boast of perfectly boiling an egg, its not as if I can’t boil eggs oo… (Don’t think I’m a bad cook o) Of course I’ve boiled eggs several times due to the fact that I love boiled eggs.
So let’s make a toast to my knowing how to detect if an egg is hard boiled without having to break it. Yippee….. Thanks to my dad for this…. I’m really so excited to share this with you.
Normally, I boil eggs by giving it specific time depending on the amount of eggs but sometimes when am so in a haste, I tend to break the egg without it being fully done. And I reboil when needs be or sometimes I just shrug and enjoy it that way (then I comfort my self by saying undone eggs are more nourishing…. *covers face).
But today I was also in this situation of boiling eggs for my dad after I have taken his own share of the eggs I boiled for the house this morning. I was reading a book and I was so in a haste if getting the boiled eggs and returning to my book.(It’s a book I’ve read over and over but I Still feel entertained by it anytime I do…. You know that feeling? Right….. Dear Future Husband by Tomi Adesina.If you haven’t read it pls do,here) And that was how I got undone eggs…. Dad had to tell me this few tips which we tried.
So over to how to know a hard boil egg without cracking it.
- A hard-boiled egg, being solid, will spin smoothly. A raw egg, being liquid inside, will wobble.
- Double-check by spinning the egg and suddenly stopping its rotation with the tip of your finger. A hard-boiled egg comes to an immediate stop and stays stopped if you lift your finger. A raw egg begins to rotate again, though more slowly, if you quickly lift your finger away.
- A hard- boiled Egg will sink in plain water and will float in salt water. An egg is denser than plain water but lighter than salt water.
- One can also hold it up to a very bright light. If you can’t see inside it’s been cooked.
Of course, after boiling, one has to put the eggs in warm water to ease the shell removal…. Then an eggcellent snack is gotten.
Thanks Dad for these tips.
I love eggs.
