One of the best cooking tips Marash Girl ever got from her mother was how to catch a bit of egg shell that has fallen into your egg mixture and/or muffin/popover/cake batter. Anyone know?
There's something about an egg shell. It likes itself. If you try to get a bit of eggshell out of the mix with a spoon or your finger, (whether it be a mix of eggs ready to be scrambled, or eggs and milk and oil ready to be added to the flour mixture for muffins,) good luck. You'll spend a lot of time chasing the bit of egg shell around the bowl. All you have to do is use the half of the egg shell that you just cracked open, and immediately the bit will attach itself to its kin.
Anyone know the reason?
Now how can we apply this bit of wisdom to life?
