Just A Few Neat Egg Hacks

I have heard these hacks from people on the bus when I go to the store.

This first hack will come in handy for those that do a lot of baking. Did you know that you can freeze raw eggs and then use them in cooking. This includes scrambling them. All you need to do is take a plastic ice tray that has at least a dozen sections in it for ice cubes. Crack one egg and put it in each of the sections and freeze the whole tray. After the eggs are frozen just pop them out and put them in a plastic bag back in the freezer. When you need a single egg, or multiple eggs, just go to the freezer and take out as many as you need. let them thaw out and then cook with them just like you always have.

We all know that when a raw egg goes anyplace except for in the bowl or frying pan that you want it to go in, it’s a mess to try to clean up. It usually takes a lot of paper towels to accomplish the job. Well not any more. If a raw egg goes astray when it’s being cracked, just cover it with salt and a paste will form. Once it has become like a paste, it’s easy to clean up.

If you want a perfect sunny side up egg in the microwave, then put one cracked open egg in the center of a small bowl. Stab the egg in the center, very gently, to let it get air. Put it in the microwave for three minutes and you will get a perfect sunny side up egg.

To tell if the egg is still fresh, float it in a bowl of cold water. If it lays on the bottom,  the egg is fresh. If the egg stands on one end on the bottom, it it still good but a few weeks old. If they float to the surface they are no longer fresh enough to eat.
