Recently, my dear sister gave me this gorgeous blue and white for my birthday!
the back side
And it's a DOUBLE! It holds 2 eggs, so I'll use it for when I awake extra hungry or to share with W. (My first one stands beside it).
I have come to realize that alot of people have never heard of egg coddlers, so here's a little "3 minute egg" education, *lol* (I almost said "eggucation", but resisted).
Egg coddlers have been manufactured by Royal Worcester in Worcester, UK since at least the 1890s, and were probably invented there.
Coddled eggs are gently or lightly cooked eggs with the help of a porcelain cup or ramekin with a lid.
The inside of the egg coddler is first buttered in order to flavor the egg and allow it to be removed more easily. I then lightly salt and pepper the inside before breaking a raw egg (or in this case, eggs) into the coddler;
a little more pepper on the top, screw on the lid, and place in a pan of near-boiling water for 7-8 minutes.
the end result
This was the double coddler debut and quite honestly, I left it too long in the water and it is a bit more firm than I like.
