Jump on over to It's Overflowings EGG HUNT this week. Aimee is featuring all sorts of EGGY ideas and I am participating too-- HOW EXCITING!
In the spirit of all things EGGS, I thought I'd share this quick tip. To those of you whose grandmothers, mothers, or just plain old google have pointed this quick tip out to you years ago, well done. To the rest of us who need reminders of how to make little problems like egg shell pieces disappear, then here you go!
Cracking eggs into a bowl and having a piece of the shell drop in along with the egg yolk is no longer going to be an issue for you in the kitchen. Instead of fishing out that tiny shard of shell with a spoon or your fingers, here is the solution. The egg itself does all of the work for you!
|Oh dear, a piece of egg shell dropped in...|
Simply use the cracked egg shell to scoop up any lingering pieces of shells that might have dropped into your bowl. The egg shell piece really does want to cling to the egg shell scoop. I am sure this could be explained away with scientific words like viscosity and surface area and density of this and that...but all of those reasons fade to the background when you see how simple and reliable this quick tip is to use.
|The solution is right there in your hand: use the cracked egg shell!|
|Scoop up the broken piece of shell-- it practically jumps into the egg scoop once you get it close enough.|
|Ta-da! Egg shell pieces are no longer a problem.|
