How do I get the inside of an egg out, without breaking the egg or boiling it?
By Katherine Main from London, UK
Stick a hole in each end of the egg with a needle being careful not to crack the egg as you slowly get the hole started with the needle. You then blow on one end of the raw egg and the egg will go through the other end if the hole is as large as the head of a pin. Hold over a bowl. You can use the eggs to make scrambled eggs if you are doing a lot. This is the only method I know of how to remove raw eggs and then you can place a sequin with glue over the small hole.
The hole at the end where you blow in can be very tiny. The exit hole for the egg contents will have to be the size of a peppercorn.
We used a simple safety pin un-bent and poked tiny holes in either side. Then we stuck a larger safety pin, un-bent inside to break the yoke. Bought an infant nasal aspirator at Walmart for $2 and used it to blow the contents out. That way there were no germs on the eggs, so we could use them for cooking, and no possiblity of salmonella by using our mouths on raw eggs. We then put the shells in boiling water for a minute to steralize them before decorating. If you do not want the tiny holes to show, they can be covered with decorations or with a spot of glue.
After piercing both ends with the large needle and picking 1 hole a little larger be sure that you break the yoke on the inside before you try to blow the inside out you can use a Bamboo shish kebob stick to mix up the insides really well then they should blow out quite easily then enjoy a scrambled egg, omelets make a cake or cookies.
