I am always looking for clever ways to make my life easier. I want spend my day doing things I enjoy … rather than doing things I consider a tedious chore. Obviously chores need doing, but what if you found a way that made peeling eggs dead easy. Easy as in never having to peel a boiled egg again. And no, that doesn’t mean that you have to eat egg shells. Watch this guy, and be prepared to burst into astonished laughter.
By the way, I haven’t tested this trick to see if it works, but I will in the next few days.
There’s a interesting blog post and video clip of this at http://lifehacker.com/5651930/easily-peel-hard+boiled-eggs
Update – I’ve tried twice to reproduce this ‘trick’, and I’ve failed both times. Pshaw. I’d be very interested in knowing if ANYONE managed to blow an egg out of its shell. And while we’re on the subject of duff stuff on the internet, I added bicarb to the water in which I boiled the eggs, and if anything the shells stuck more tightly than without bicarb. This experience has left me totally grumpy and convinced that the quality of info on the internet is at par with the tat sold on the shopping channel.
The video is a good laugh though …
