“Almost” RAW Eggs

You know those movies like Rocky, or Electra Glide in Blue, where you see the hero drink down a big gulp sized glass of raw eggs? Have you ever tried it? Drinking raw eggs is not the easiest thing to do. The texture is not the greatest and the flavor is not so great either.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love eggs. I use eggs quite a bit in my personal eating plan, they are a great source of protein as well as other important nutrients. I even use raw eggs in some of my favorite recipes. I’ll admit however that I have only actually been able to drink a glass full of raw eggs on one occasion.

Some people are afraid that raw eggs may be a source of salmonella. The secret to eating raw eggs safely is to get the freshest eggs possible and to know the source. If you are worried about getting sick but still would like to use eggs in your recipes, try using “almost” raw eggs. Almost raw eggs allow you to enjoy your eggs with no fear that they will make you sick while you still have an egg with a loose consistency for salad dressings, home made mayo, aoli etc.

Here is how you make them “almost” raw:

1. Put egg(s) out at room temperature

2. Boil water and then turn it off (leaving on burner)

3. Put egg(s) immediately in water and leave for 5-6 minutes

4. After 5-6 minutes has elapsed, empty hot water

5. Before breaking eggs run under cold water for a few seconds ( you don’t want to burn your hands)

6. Break open egg(s) into bowl or blender etc. You may need a spoon to scoop out some of the whites which may be slightly stiff.

Well there you go, an easy way to make your eggs safe and still enjoy them in your favorite recipes. Remember to check back here for more nutrition tips as well as other ideas about how to enhance your own personal eating plan.
