15 Minutes : Make It : Alien Egg

Alien Egg

Ever peel an egg without using you fingers? Place a raw EGG in a jar, and add enough WHITE VINEGAR to cover it; screw on the lid, and put it in the refrigerator. The next day, pour out the liquid, cover with fresh vinegar, and place it back in the fridge. On the third day, remove the egg; its shell will have dissolved, and it will be plump and rubbery It'll also be translucent -- roll it gently from side to side, and you'll see the yolk bumping around. The acid in the vinegar eats through the shell; the egg is plump because it gradually absorbs the liquid through the membranes.
