When I boil eggs I always crack them and add bunch of salt to prevent them from liking out, but I have never tasted any salt in the finished product.

You are what you eat.

Breezy as always is right. Have made tea eggs but just for other folks; cannot stand boiled eggs, although I love eggs cooked any other way.

The tea eggs I have made were done for the presentation, but I suppose you could infuse a bit of flavor with spices.

But once cooked that albumen is pretty impermeable, so I don't know if one can really flavor them.

That being said I have never tasted those eggs they sell in bars in a vinegar mixture. Whether they have abosrbed the vinegar and any associated spices I have no idea.

I wish I could like the darn things. My Mom tried to make my sister and mysef eat the odious ova - God bless her. But she did it to no avail. And finally gave up.

We then got hamburgers for breakfast. A great way to get send off to school, loved it.

Sorry, getting off topic.

Basically I know of no way to make the horrible boiled egg taste a bit different than God made it.

But maybe I have to go back to those bars that serve them in the vinegar mixture.

But right now they are closed and I am tired.

Take care and God bless.
