    Not the latest brunch trend, but still cool.


    * 1 egg

    * Water

    * Metal tongs

    * Clear container

    * Candle

    * Matches/lighter


    # Light a candle.

    # Using a pair of tongs, hold the egg in the flame.

    # Cover as much of the egg as you can with black soot.

    # Submerge the egg in a bowl of water. Let it sit until it takes on a silver hue.

    # When you remove the egg from the water, it will return to black.
