From burst eggs to the risk of salmonella: when it comes to how to blow out an egg, you should definitely take these tips to heart. It’s easy and safe!
The most beautiful Easter decoration is homemade – and traditionally, beautiful, self-designed, dyed and painted eggs belong on the Easter bouquet or in the Easter nest. And so that you can use the eggs again next year, what’s inside has to come out of the egg. Only when all the residue has been removed should you paint, glue and decorate the blown-out Easter eggs to your heart’s content.
If you don’t know how to do it, blowing out Easter eggs can turn into a real chore: the egg yolk doesn’t come out, the egg bursts between your fingers and then there is the risk of salmonella from raw eggs. That’s why it’s important to take a few tips to heart how to blow out an egg to be completely safe.
Tip: Don’t throw away the egg mixture! After blowing out the eggs, you can bake a delicious omelette, pancake or waffle. The blown-out egg yolks and egg whites can still be stored in the fridge in a closed container for up to a maximum of 3 days.
Raw eggs can transmit salmonella – that is why you should not blow out Easter eggs directly with your mouth but always use a straw or a blowfix. What many people don’t know is that the first place to be infected with salmonella is the shell of an egg – so you should avoid touching it with your lips and wash it well before blowing it out!
You should also use very fresh eggs, preferably fresh from an organic farmer, and make sure that the shell of the egg is whole. If the shell is damaged, bacteria can get inside.
Wash your hands thoroughly after blowing out the egg. And wipe the work surface well as well as wash the shish kebab, the needle and all the tools used.
And then you can start painting :-).
