Peel an Egg

After watching the "Sprint Cut" on how to peel an egg at http://www.waitless.org/ I was intrigued. I thought this might be useful for Tim and me considering how many hardboiled eggs we eat. So we gave it shot. Results are below (unfortunately, I didn't realize the digital camera doesn't record sound). We're not certain whether it belongs in Handy Tricks or How Not To... Disclosure: Sprint is an advertiser on Instructables, and waitless.org is part of their advertising.

The Man Who Unboiled The Egg...

Hervé This, a French chemist, loves experimenting with food and the science of cooking. His mission in life is to reveal the science that lies behind the mystery of cooking. This has world-wide acclaim and his experiments just rock. He's unboiled an egg using sodium borohydride, and you can even try this at home using Vitamin C.I particularly like this segment of the article:"There is a quail's egg that has been standing in vinegar for three years. The acid has attacked its shell and made it translucent. By osmosis, it has swelled up to about four times its original size. Hervé says that it has the same consistency as a hard-boiled egg and could be eaten in a salad."Intrigued? Read on...

What can be done with the little plastic capsules from Kinder Surprise eggs?

Kinder Surprise eggs are hollow chocolate eggs - the size of a large hen's egg, containing a small toy - usually a clip-together kit of some kind, contained within an ovoid plastic capsule. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinder_SurpriseThe capsules used to be two-part, but have recently switched to having a living hinge attaching the lid section. They're a little under two inches long and about an inch in diameter (the pic in the above link shows the older, two-part design - but they're the same size either way)Surely there's something useful that could be done with these little plastic containers - they close pretty tightly - so I guess they could be waterproofed pretty easily (LED 'floaties' maybe? - although releasing them into the ocean would be littering)

Ostrich eggs!

While me and my family are having a holiday in Devon, UK, we came across a local store that sell real Ostrich eggs! This is my first time in my life seeing a ostrich egg, my dad brought one and ostrich eggs are said to taste like normal chicken eggs and a single ostrich egg has a average serving of 18 - 24 chicken eggs... I wonder if anybody has ostrich eggs in their area and ever eaten one...

Bouncing eggs!! What do you think?

Did you know that if you leave an egg in vinegar for a few days the vinegar will dissolve the shell of the egg and the egg can bounce!! Post your views on bouncing eggs!  Refer the video to see how to make it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrVuag3YCtQ

How to Make and Eat a Nine-Egg Breakfast

The secret is quail eggs. I found the quail eggs' membranes tougher than expected, and I had to pinch them to actually crack open the eggs. Quail eggs taste more "like eggs" than standard chicken eggs -- like the difference between a factory-farmed egg and an egg from my neighbor's chickens that eat grubs all day. You can hard boil them too. I started the eggs in cold water, heated it until boiling, let it boil for 1 minute, and then turned the heat off let the eggs sit in the hot water for 7 minutes. Finally, I quickly cooled them under cold water, and the shells were easy to peel.

Just don't be subtle about it as the original eggs were completely over the top. You can read more about them here and here.We'll announce the prizes next week along with the rest of the details of the contest.Edit: The traditional way is to blow out a real egg to cut open and decorate.

How to drop an egg from a window and prevent it from crashing

Hello everybody I think you might find this exercise fun and at the same time original ideas are needed! Thanks In advance!! I'm studying design and this exercise has become a classic at my school. Since 10 years ago students have tried to reach the objective but also to develop an original and creative solution. The exercise is to develop a kind of device in order to be able to drop an egg from a window in the first floor and land it safely on the ground at a distance that has to be less than 3 cm from it. Plain Parachutes and slides are forbidden as they are too obvious unless they have a distinctive aspect and also you can`t wrap the egg in something soft (like a pillow) and drop it. Important things to take notice are: -The person has to loose all contact with the egg (You can´t hold a fishing rod with an egg on the end of the line and slowly get it down). -It must be a raw chicken egg Thanks!!

car, transportation, egg

Hi, i have to build a toy car or something like it, powered by rubber bands so its no problem, the thing is that it has to travel 31ft on a straight line, and then stop at 31ft and drop an egg. the egg must survive the fall from the car... Any ideas??? I'd consider using some type of braking mechanism. A string wrapped from a front axle to a rear axle would make a great brake. It would work kind of like a cassette tape; winding from one side to the other, and stopping when it's completely transferred form one to the other.

There's a steampunk egg containing a pendant on ebay.Nice little item, and part of the proceeds go to charity, so I don't feel spammy advertising it.

Everlasting Easter eggs tips?

We don't eat much eggs in this house hold let alone boiled eggs so it would be a waste to just make, colour and then eventually throw out those Easter eggs after words. But I still want to have some coloured Easter eggs to make a cheery atmosphere. Colouring raw eggs is not practical either.  So I was thinking taking eggs that I would use to make cakes est and instead of just cracking I would just make a small hole on one end to let the yoke out in the process preserving the egg shells. Now with those egg shells, can I pour in Plaster of Paris to replace the yokes that were in them? So I can get a sort of real egg feeling? Then colouring them when dry? What do you think?

Arghh! Eggs!

Today was a great day in school! I came home craving hard boiled eggs, so I take 4 eggs from a container that I thought was fairly old (5 days or so). Turns out they were fresh. Now my eggs are impossible to completely peel, albeit being good inside.Is there a good way to remove all of the shell? Is there anything I can do with these eggs (that is, a recipe)?I really to see 3 good eggs go to waste. Does anyone know what to do?Thanks,Bran.

Hello I was wondering if anyone was interested in buying the molds I created to make the cast and carve chocolates in my instructable.  https://www.instructables.com/id/Carve-an-cast-chocolate-treets/ It means you don't have to go through the pesky business of carving or making our own molds to end up with some fun chocolates.. or you could use something like plaster and end up with some nice casts.

The Great Egg Race Returns!

Brits of a certain age will remember The Great Egg Race - teams of ingenious chaps using the contents of a typical shed or kitchen to solve a problem of which they have no prior notice, kind of a cardigan-wearing precursor to Scrapheap Challenge (aka Junkyard Wars). At the same time, an international egg-mobile contest was going on; teams and individuals competing to make vehicles to carry a 70g egg as far as possible, powered only by a single, small elastic band.  For American readers, it's a similar idea to a mouse-trap car. Well, it's back! Firstly, there's a digitised archive of shows from the Early eighties (the years when I was in secondary education!) available online here (sorry, I don't know if they are available to US viewers, but maybe you can find it YouTube?). In addition, Auntie Beeb is bringing it back, or at least, it's spirit, in the form of a new Wallace and Gromit show, with animated inventions, instructions for making your own gadgets (some familiar to us here, like a vibrobot, others more unusual, like a Magnus-effect car (I'm really curious about that one!). Keep an eye on this show, folks, and on the hands-on page - it could be a great source of inspiration for new Makers, and your own Instructables.

Easter eggs in Google and other things

I came along some easter eggs for Google that you simply type into the search. Examples are: do a barrel roll tilt what is the answer to everything More easter can be found in the Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Google_hoaxes_and_easter_eggs For example, today, April 1, you can get a Pacman View in the street view of Google maps. Pacman uses the roads for the game :) But I guess I found one egg that is nowhere listed so far: Tpye into the Google search: currency us au $ And check the quick result, it will tell you something about 1 Australian dollar microsecond au US$ = 114 210.494 m s U.S. dollars² Not sure if it is a bug because of a confusion with the µ sign but I am sure there must be problem when I try to pay in microseconds.... Anyway check the Wiki page for more great Easter eggs on Google. Post the best eggs you find elsewhere!

Why can't Egg Nog be an everyday drink.

So we have probably all had to deal with this. That sudden craving for nog, but alas it is summer and it is no where to be found. Why you may ask, because it is considered a freaking holiday beverage. I don't believe that it should be limited to just a few months. For I am a true lover of Egg Nog, i dream of it year round, but alas it has just hit the shelves at my local stores and will leave in 3 months time. It pains me to have to wait so long to taste its delicious nogginess. WWWWWHHHHYYYYY can't it be an everyday drink????????????
