  • To determine whether an egg is hard-boiled, spin it on it’s side. if it spins, it is hard-boiled, if it wobbles, it is raw.
  • Eggs will beat up fluffier if you let them come to room temp before beating
  • Egg shells can quickly be removed from hard-boiled eggs if you quickly rinse them in cold water first.
  • Fo a never fail, never weep meringue, add a tsp of cornstarch to the sugar before beating it.
  • Butter your knife before slicing your pie with meringue on top.
  • Butter your plastic wrap before covering your meringue pie and it will not stick!
