This recipe will show you how to make hard boiled eggs without water, and I'll explain some of the concepts of thermodynamics along the way.
First, go out to the chicken coop and gather some eggs. My sister has some Amerucana chickens so their shells are pretty pastel colors when they are laid.
Step 1: Wash the Eggshells
Egg shells are semi permeable membranes, so do not wash your eggs ahead of time and put them back in the refrigerator as you will have introduced material in your rinse water that will start to make the egg spoil as it sits.
