The 2020 Egg Season is just about to get wound up! Are you ready for farm freshness AND easy to peel eggs??
Those two things never seemed to go together until I started steaming the eggs instead of boiling, in the days before the Instant Pot, and now with the IP it’s even easier and quicker!
I like my eggs kinda creamy in the middle (not runny), so after adding a cup of cool water to the bottom of the pot and placing the eggs, I set my IP for 4 minutes on low pressure and do an instant steam release.
Next, I put them straight into an ice bath for about 5 minutes, or until I get back to them (since my multitasking game is fierce).
The egg trivet is great for holding the eggs off the bottom and sides so they cook evenly. Mine is the double stacking kind and it has held up well for many, many uses over several years.
After I make a batch of these easy eggs, storage is also easy, clean and compact in these spiffy washable, reusable cartons.
I recently bought an Instant Pot (thank you, Black Friday sale!) and have been experimenting like crazy. So far, I have only mastered one meal in the Instant Pot, but it's great for doing "unusual" things like boiling (ok, they're really steamed, not boiled) fresh eggs and this - CAJUN BOILED PEANUTS! Yum! Let's cut the nonsense and just get right to the recipe, shall we?
Cajun Boiled Peanuts (2 pounds)
2lbs raw peanuts, in the shell
6+ Jalepeno Peppers (green or wait until they turn red, as I did)
6+ Cayenne Peppers (I used the ones I dried from the garden this past Summer)
2TBS Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2c Pink Himalayan Salt (or other salt of your choice)
2 Bay Leaves
1TBS Minced Garlic
Add all ingredients to the Instant Pot and secure the lid. Move the steam release to the "steaming" setting. Use the MANUAL setting for HIGH pressure and set the time for 60 minutes. When time is up, let the steam release naturally. Voila!
You may want to add more peppers if you're looking for a super hot version. This was surprisingly pretty mild, even with 12 hot peppers.
