Tuesday Tips: The Egg Edition

Which came first? The chicken or the egg? Not sure about that one, but I DO know that these egg-related tips will make things a little less complicated.
  • I hardboil eggs ahead of time most weeks. That way, they're ready as a quick healthy snack or to be added to salads. But how to tell them apart? Put a couple of drops of food coloring in the cooking water and you'll be able to recognize the cooked ones from their tint.
  • And how do you make those hard-boiled eggs easier to peel. Put them in a bowl of oce water for several minutes. The eggs will shrink away from the shell's interior and peeling them will be a piece of cake.
  • Finally, an easy way to dice the eggs for our macaroni or tuna salad. Slice and then press the eggs through a cooling rack with square grids directly into your bowl.

More next Tuesday...
