Egg - what is that?

The egg as a miracle. Looking at such an egg, it's really amazing how Mother Nature was able to do something so perfect. Granted, she had enough time. The shell of an egg is made of 90% lime. But they also contain pores. So that no bacteria get into the egg, an outer cuticle is pulled over the whole egg. This is removed by washing. In the egg, the egg yolk, from which the chicks are formed in successful fertilization, is surrounded by low-viscosity egg white. Then comes a layer of viscous egg whites. The yolk is connected with a hailstorm with the viscous egg white. It stabilizes the yolk in the egg white.

By the way, protein is not quite right. The egg white consists only of 10% protein. The rest is water. **

A hen only needs about 24 hours to produce a new egg. In nature, this naturally fluctuates, depending on the weather, food supply and health. Did you know? The color of the egg yolk comes from the feed of the animals. The darker the more meadow grasses they ate. It has no effect on the taste.

What makes the egg so healthy? Let's take a look at the nutrients:
So an egg has, per 100 g:

and many more.

** One egg class M has a weight of 53 - 63 g **

As you can see on the list, an egg contains a great many and important vitamins and minerals. But how do you make sure that as many substances as possible have survived after preparation? Because heat causes many of the nutrients to flute. The healthiest thing would be to sip the egg raw.

** By the way, the protein of a chicken egg is nearly completely metabolised for humans! All new essential amino acids that the human body can not produce itself are also included **

Cook eggs

Columbus also used to cook his eggs! And proved that some things are not as heavy as they appear at the first moment. You should expose your eggs to heat as soon as possible. However, some proteins need the heat to become biologically usable for us. So do not just commit yourself to one method. A little bit of everything and your body stays well taken care of.

** The DGE recommends 2-3 eggs a week. However, they are based on a person who also eats meat and fish. If you do not, you can eat more eggs. Many feel that way, when the body has enough, the eggs do not taste anymore. Unfortunately, B12 is almost only found in large quantities in animal products. **

Boil eggs in the water

The classic: Pot, water, stove, eggs in. This doesn't always work perfectly: One egg bursts, the next one has cracked, the inside of the next one is too soft. Or maybe you just forgot to check the clock. Are there gadgets that make it easier for you to cook eggs?

The principle is simple: You can put the Eggtimer in the boiling water and it turns colors. Practical: if you need different hard-boiled eggs, you just take some out of the water. You do not need to set time. The Eggtimer is made of resin, so it needs neither technology and can not break so fast.

** Tip: I used it for a while, the harrow timer naturally swirls in the boiling water and doesn't stay stubborn on the bottom of the pot. But works very well! - Maren **

Hourglass

Oh, the good, old egg timer! Previously, you had to turn them, just worked analogously and sometimes that did not quite work out with the sand that was in it. Egg clocks are digital today.

** So that your egg does not burst in the water, a Pikser is good for poking the shell. The heat creates pressure in the egg, which can escape through the hole. **

Eggs are cooking egg cooker

An egg cooker has many advantages: You can hire him and don't need to worry about it, he works independently. The Egg cooker cooks your eggs with steam. That is gentler than full throttle in boiling water. An egg boiler also requires less energy. You don't have to boil the whole pot of water or bother your stove with it.

Eggs cook microwave

Goes too! Only, not just like that. If you put an egg in the microwave and put it into operation, it will not take long for the egg to exolode. Too much pressure for such a small egg! There are special missions for your microwave.

**Tip: You can also put your eggs in a microwave-safe container and prepare with water in the microwave. This method is not very sensible, but is suitable for emergencies. **

Eggs are cooking steamer

Maybe you already have a steamer? Or are you thinking about buying one? Then our steamer guide would be the right one for you.
The steam in a steamer also prepares your egg. Steam has, like an egg cooker, the advantage that the eggs are not whirled around and they also less burst. The egg should also taste better overall. Maybe you already have experience with it?
Generally, you can set your steamer to 100 degrees and 6 minutes. Then a medium-sized egg is cooked soft.

Poach eggs

Poached eggs are prepared without a shell in hot but not boiling water. There is a good gadget for that

which allows you to succeed in your eggs every time. According to the manufacturer, the material is without toxic additives.

** Tick eggs: Always bite your egg on the flat side, because there is the bubble. Are your eggs maybe wrong in the box? Then it can be worthwhile to turn it upside down for a while. **

Eggs notes

What else is worth knowing about the egg?

  • A hard-boiled egg can be kept in the fridge for up to four weeks, without a refrigerator for about a week
  • Raw eggs will last up to 20 days without a refrigerator, in the fridge for up to 6 weeks
  • Anything that has come into contact with a raw egg or shell should be washed thoroughly with hot water and soap. Salmonella can be found in the eggs and often bacteria on the shell

** Why are boiled eggs on the edge green-blue? That's nothing bad and no sign of corruption. This discoloration is iron sulfide, which is driven by boiling to the edge of the egg yolk. **

Shelf life test egg

You can not look in an egg badly. If you are not sure, you can do the following test to see if the egg is still good:

swimming sample

If you put the egg in a container with water and it floats on the surface, it is spoiled. The egg has drawn air through the shell.
If it stays on the ground, it's definitely good, and if it floats halfway, not halfway, you should definitely crawl it very well.

** If in doubt, throw the egg away. It is a raw food, which can bring unpleasant side effects when it is easily spoiled. **

Conclusion - Cooking Eggs | egg cooker

Eggs are very healthy for us because they have a high usability for humans. Raw, however, they are to be enjoyed with some caution. But that's not the case with raw meat and raw fish. Eggs are filled to the brim with vitamins and minerals, fats and proteins. They are a small powerhouse and apart from vitamin C, they contain almost everything that is important for the human organism. Cooking eggs is not difficult and with a few helpful gadgets you can not only do something different on the side, but also save a lot of energy. It's worth it, even if you only eat two eggs a week.

By the way: If you buy organic eggs, you can still use the shell by processing it into a great fertilizer. This works best with coffee grounds and the shell of a (organic) banana. Throw everything together with water into a blender. Then you can either dry this "mud" or give it fresh to your plants. That's a real boost!
