Egg

EL Ideas

Zagat
How do you turn an egg into a water balloon? Vinegar. [...] The process involves soaking an egg for one month, during which time the vinegar denatures the protein in the eggshell until it dissolves. Then it gets to work on the yolk, which turns into a fudge-like substance, according to Foss. The egg is removed from the vinegar, and what is left is indeed an egg balloon. The egg's membrane is still intact, protecting the liquid whites and semi-solid yolk. [...] The membrane is punctured and the liquid is removed (it retains too much vinegar, and Foss has now found a new use for it). It is served with uni, chawanmushi (Japanese egg custard) and roe.
