I'm confused by the word "grow". It looks like you are removing the shell and infusing the egg with vinegar. I take it when cooked, it becomes a pickled egg immediately. Interesting.

This is an interpretation of a classic science experiment; the weak acid in vinegar dissolves eggshells while leaving the yolk sac intact, the "grow" in the title is likely referring to the fact that the egg appears to have "grown" following the dissolving process, as it appears larger due to the fact that the yolk sac is flexible, while the eggshell is not. Presumably, if you cooked it, after soaking it just a day more, it would indeed pickle.
