Eggs are full of the things needed to
grow and sustain life and should be eaten every day. One egg a day will
provide a vegetarian with all the animal protein they need. Eggs should
be from hens that are free range or pastured. Egg yolks should
preferably be eaten raw. Egg whites need to be cooked. One way to
accomplish that is to make a 2-minute boiled egg, which cooks the white
and leaves the egg yolk runny.
To make a 2-minute egg,
bring water sufficient to cover to a boil. Put the egg into the water
and start timing. As soon as 2 minutes are up, remove the egg from the
boiling water and set it on the counter. Put on a pair of gloves to
pick up the hot egg, hold the egg at the pointed end and tap it with
the flat of a knife on the round end. As soon as the shell is broken
enough, use a small spoon to pull the shell away and then scoop out the
inside of the egg.
The egg can be put in a
cup with pieces of bread or some raw seed sprouts such as buckwheat
sprouts. You may want to keep the cup in a pan of hot water while you
are cooking the egg to help keep the egg warm after it is out of the
Keeping free-range barn eggs fresh
Freshly laid eggs have a protective coating which
will keep the first laid eggs fresh until the hen has finished laying a
big enough batch at the rate of about 1 egg per day to make it worth
her while to begin brooding them.
Washing eggs removes
this coating. Do not wash fresh eggs if you want to keep them fresh
Refrigerating causes the
air space inside the egg to contract, allowing the migration of
pathogenic microbes into the egg (how salmonella gets inside eggs).
So, if you want to keep
barn eggs fresh at room temperatures, be sure they are neither washed
or cooled. Once eggs have been refrigerated or cooled, they must be
