For a wicked, artistic and nutritious Halloween food/treat, nothing beats this spider-inspired charm: spiderweb eggs.
Webs are "spun" with the help of blueberries added to the water as the eggs cook. The berries impart their color, but magically leave no flavor to the eggs.
This treat is one of my child's Halloween treats every year. Actually the eggs are so photogenic that the photo can be framed as an art piece.
If you can hard boil eggs, you can make this treat to charm whoever you please with easy 1-2-3-4 steps.
Step 1: Wash the Eggs.
Wash the eggs really well as they are soaked in the cooking water to spin the web.
Step 2: Boil the Eggs.
Cover the eggs with water
Add 1 cup frozen blue berry
Boil the eggs the same way as you have done hundreds of times before.
Step 3: Crack the Shells.
Place the egg on a towel
Use a soup spoon crack one side of the egg shell
Place the cracked egg back in the cooking water
Place the whole pot in the fridge overnight. (That's how I let time does the work for me while I sleep. If you can't wait, sacrifice one egg to see if shorter time works.)
Step 4: Remove the Shell
Remove the shell very carefully little by little. This is probably the hardest of the whole project. The spider web on the thin film that covers the egg white is more obvious than on the egg white. You can peel the whole egg or just partially to reveal the spider web.
Serve with a pinch of salt. Garnish with plastic spider if you like.
