Guess what? You can hardboil eggs in the crockpot!
Who would've thunk it?
Put eggs into your crockpot. Cover them completely with water, and an extra inch or so for good measure.
Cover and cook on low overnight. I plugged them in at 9pm and unplugged it at 6am the next day.
They worked! The eggs were definitely hard in the morning.
The kitchen also stunk.
And although the eggs peeled beautifully, the white part was a weird brownish-green.
Adam begged me not to eat them.
So after dying a few (and my fingers. I can never not dye my fingers...sigh...) I wrapped the lot in a few too many plastic bags and took them outside.
Then I aired the kitchen and lit a bunch of vanilla scented candles.
and took the day off.
