|"They are one of the healthiest things you can eat," says Dr. Mercola|
Three years ago, I didn't know that unwashed, non-pasteurized eggs don't need to be refrigerated, or that eggs purchased at the grocery store can be several weeks old by the time you bring them home.
Another thing I learned is that a fresh, hard boiled egg is hard to peel. One of my Facebook chicken friends shared her method of steaming eggs, claiming that steamed eggs will peel easier. And it is true.
Here is my easy, steam method:
|These eggs were made by my Delaware hen, |
I set the timer for 25 minutes. It takes my pan about 10 minutes to get up to a full steam. Your stove top, pan, the temperature or the size of your eggs may be different and you may have to adjust the time. Just use my test method the first time and then you will know how long for your perfect egg.
TEST METHOD: When my timer goes off, I remove one egg and add it to a bowl of ice water. I quickly peel this egg to be certain it is done. (And it always is.) Then I add the rest of the eggs to the water to cool.
Now, I add a small chunk of butter and Himalayan salt to my test egg and have a healthy snack.
The remaining hard-boiled eggs go unpeeled into a bowl, where they keep for at least a week. We use them for salads and quick snacks.
One more thing. I don't throw the egg water away. I do this instead:
I have not bought eggs at the store for many years, but if I ever do, I will continue to steam, rather than boil my eggs. I hope you try it!

Many Blessings to you.
