Black Salt

Black Salt is a Pink Salt heavy in Sulfur. If you taste it you will immediately think eggs. When added to Egg Dishes it pronounces the Sulfur taste which may be desirable by some. For people who do not eat eggs but would like to. This is an excellent way to get egg flavor without actually using eggs.

Cream of Tartar

Cream of Tartar is usually used to thicken or stiffen Eggs. Here we use it for the Sour Taste it offers as well as getting some Potassium. The Sour taste offered is much toner than adding straight vinegar and doesn’t dilute the Egg Yolks with Liquid.

Hard Boiled Eggs

The Objective is to get just set yolks. Where there is no color change in the yolk just White and Yellow, no green film or dried out yolks. You could go just before they set to add some creaminess or Half and Half if you’d like. Where half the eggs are taken out a bit earlier to get Egg Yolks just before setting with the remaining sitting longer to firm the egg yolks a bit more.

There are numerous ways to make hard boiled eggs. There is no one correct way. However my objective was to get the best Hard Boiled Eggs with more control over the yolk and in the shortest time possible. This brought me to the 5-5-5 method.

Bring water to a boil and gently lay the eggs in and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let rest 5 minutes. Strain the water out and add cold water and let rest for 5 minutes. Peel the Eggs under running warm water. This gave almost completely set Egg Yolks.

Peeling Eggs

There is a membrane between the Egg White and the Shell. If you do not get under this and peel. It will be extremely difficult to peel without damaging the Egg Whites. Running under water helps with this only if you have pierced through the membrane. If not, slightly tear the membrane so that you can get under it before peeling the rest of the egg. Allow the running water to get under as well to lift the membrane and assist with easier peeling.

Deviled Eggs

The Cream of Tartar & the Black Salt is what makes these Pop.
