Cobweb Eggs #SundaySupper


Today the Sunday Supper crew is celebrating Halloween and sharing some Halloween Finger Foods recipes. I've made marbled eggs before, but I thought they were the perfect, eerie appetizer for a Halloween potluck because they look like spiderwebs, right?

Ingredients makes 12
  • 12 eggs
  • water, as needed
  • 4 T soy sauce
  • 3 T red wine
  • 2 C water
  • 3 T black tea leaves
  • 1 t sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1" knob fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 2 T honey
  • 1 t red chili flakes
  • salt for serving

Procedure
Place the eggs in a pot with the water, making sure that there is at least an inch of water over the eggs. Bring the water to a rolling boil. Remove from heat and let the eggs stand in the hot water for 15 - 20 minutes. Run the under cold water to cool. Reserve 1 C of the cooking water in the pan.

Tap the boiled eggs to make a series of cracks all over the eggshells. Try to keep the shells intact. But if some pieces happen to flake off, don't worry.

Add the remaining ingredients to the pan with the water. Bring back to a boil. Add the eggs. If there's not enough liquid to submerge them, add more water. Simmer for 2 hours.


Turn off the heat and let the eggs cool in their liquid.


Before serving, peel and place on a platter with black salt.

  1. These are perfect. I thought so the first time I saw them but I think they look more like brains. LOL

  2. These are SO cool!!! They do look like cobwebs, though at first glance, I saw "cowboy" eggs and was trying to figure out how they worked for Halloween, LOL.

  4. Whoa! These are too cool. I love the effect and think something similar with brighter colors would be amazing for Easter.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
