A “naked egg” is an egg that has no shell. Let me say that again, an egg with no shell. This is not something you normally run across and even when I show a naked egg to someone they often just don’t get the idea that the shell is gone – yet the egg stays intact.

Step 1: Here’s what you need

Let’s get to the fun stuff. In order to make a Naked Egg you will need the following items:
1.Vinegar ~16oz/ 473mL( Distilled Vinegar/ White Vinegar or any other type).
2.A couple of glasses or cups.
3.Raw eggs.
4. Corn Syrup
5. Food Colour
6. Time= 12-24Hrs.

In this Instructable I have used both Distilled Vinegar and Sugar Cane Vinegar

I have soaked eggs and chicken bones in vinegar when my children were in school and with my girl scout troop. They were fascinated that I had an unboken egg in a bottle and could not figure out how I did it. I had soaked and eggs and then got it in the bottle while it was soft. I let it dry out and it hardened back up. They could not get the egg back out whole. Chicken bones soaked in vinegar could be tied in knots and then were let harden again. Lots of things could be made with vinegar...even lotions. Best use I have for it is pickling and cleaning.

My brother did that for science class one year. I think it's a really cool idea
i was surprised and found this to be very interesting. my question. would there be any difference with the chemical reaction if you did hard boil then chemically remove the shell. but then. why would one bother its no longer a naked egg. what an egg head!

Ive eaten plenty of pickled eggs. Vinegar soaked boiled eggs havent killed me yet. Some might argue otherwise due to the smell after tho.
i think the key word in your statement was boiled. but if your game, all the power to you!

Sometimes hens lay them this way if they have a deficiency. Usually they burst in the nest. Time to put out more oyster shells--I think they mix it into their feed now.
