Ever break an egg and accidentally include a small piece of the egg shell? Never, you say? Well, you are a better huevo-handler than I, because I do it all the time.
I recently learned from Geoff, our sous chef at Plump Jack, that the broken egg shell itself is the best tool to fish out the swimming fragment. If you use a finger, the shell practically dances away from you; I get the same annoying outcome with a spoon. However, the half egg shell, with its jagged edge, will slice through the egg white and allow you to scoop up the pesky little shell bit no problem.
Try it, even if it's just for sport because you never drop shell bits into your batter. It's uncanny how well it works!
