Making hardboiled eggs fun! Create “dinosaur eggs” through using a technique of gently cracking an egg’s shell and staining the egg in a soy sauce and a beet vinegar mixture.
Hardboiled Dinosaur Eggs
Ingredients Makes: 6 hardboiled eggs
6 fresh eggs
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup vinegar beet liquid from canned beets
Prepare the eggs. Place eggs in a saucepan and fill with water until it covers the eggs by an inch or two. Add a half of a teaspoon of sea salt to the water; this is said to help prevent cracking as well make the eggs easier to peel.
Bring the water to a boil and then reduce the heat to a medium-low (3 on the electric stove), cover with a lid and cook on a low boil for 12 minutes. When eggs are done cooking, cool the eggs immediately by transferring them to a large bowl with ice-cold water with a slotted spoon. Allow eggs to cool for at least 5 minutes in the cold water.
Crack the egg shell. After the eggs have cooled for at least 5 minutes, it is time to crack the shell. Gently tap the large bottom of the egg to crack the shell, then gently roll the egg on the counter until the shell is cracked all over, but still intact. Crack all of the eggs in this manner.
Stain the eggs. Return the eggs to the saucepan and pour in the soy sauce, the vinegar beet liquid and just enough water to cover the eggs. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat, but leave the eggs in the water mixture to cool for 15 to 20 minutes. Peel the eggs carefully under cool water and cool in a fridge until ready to serve. Eat the eggs within 5 days. Enjoy and have fun!
