How to Make a Scrambled Egg in Shell
(image via Instructables)
To do this, you’ll need:
- a raw egg
- a pair of stockings (one that is not too stretchy)
- baking soda (optional)
- Place the egg in the middle of the leg of the stocking
- Grab each end of the stocking and give the suspended egg 20-25 twists. When it is fully twisted, pull the ends of the stocking quickly to unravel. Repeat about 10 times.
- To check if your egg is scrambled, use a flashlight in a dark room and place it up to the egg to “candle” the egg. A properly scrambled egg will appear darker and more red under the light than a non-scrambled egg.
- Boil your eggs as you usually would, except once the water boils, leave them in there for about 6 minutes or so (Optional: add baking soda before you boil your water).
Protip: Peeling pre-scrambled eggs is more difficult than regular eggs. To combat this I’d still recommend the cool trick of adding a teaspoon of baking soda in the water RIGHT BEFORE you boil the eggs. This will raise the PH levels of the water, reducing the adherence of the shell.
Just add some salt afterward to season up your solid-scrambled eggs.
