About a month ago I boiled eggs for breakfast and after almost an hour of boiling I cracked one open and half of the egg was missing. It was odd. And the news hadn't reported about the contaminated eggs at the time, but my gut instinct said that that the problem had to be with more than 1 egg. So I cracked another and it was the same. I dont know if it had anything to do with the contaminated ones, but the eggs weren't hard even after an 1 hr and they smelled funny even though the date had not expired. So I threw the whole carton away. I think as long as the ones people have aren't the brands that were contaminated we should be fine. :)

Boiling eggs for an hour!!! They would be hard cooked after ten minutes. I'll bet they smelled like sulfur.

You boil your eggs for an hour? I boil mine for one minute, take off the heat, cover, and let stand exactly 18 minutes, then cool in ice water. Perfect eggs and usually very easy to peal.

We'll not an hour, I exaggerated, but I like my eggs hard and that means at 30 min for me. That's how I like them. They had never been like that before.

But they are unsafe this way. Okay, only one thing to do, sweetie: We can have up to four hens within city limits. I do have a coop picked out. We shall be the envy of the neighborhood! No worries about the historical society. Backyard chickens are very traditional.

You know...I even have my breed of chicken picked out!

But eggs would be sustainable, organic, and cheap cheap cheap cheap.

Okay, I'll stop now....but I really do have my chicken breeds selected.

Not surprised! You probably boiled the yolk into oblivion. I boil my eggs for barely minutes depending on softness, hardness. But yours after boiling - one hour??? Jeez, what you gonna do - catapult 'em at British chavs?







Not a bad idea, that.
