You know the old saying. "It's so hot you can fry an egg on the sidewalk!"
Well, what if it's not hot? What if it's cold as heck and you want to do something with an egg outside? I recently found myself in that predicament while in Korea. It was freezing. The coldest I've ever been in my life (I'm from New York, so give me some slack). Somedays it was in the single digits and that wasn't even the real feel!!!
So it got me thinking. Instead of frying an egg outside cause it's so hot...what if I attempted to reverse fry an egg? AKA freeze it. As I said...IT WAS COLD. Really cold. Plus I wanted to see what a frozen egg looked like. So I decided to try it. This is my story.
It all began (and ended) in PyeongChang. Home of the 2018 winter olympics, and my reverse frying an egg experiment.
It was simple, I just wanted to see how long it would take for an egg to freeze outside and also what would become of my egg. So I put one in a pan (because I'm a CHEF).
I dropped four whole eggs in some snow, because I wanted to see how a cold-boiled egg would turn out.
And just for kicks, I cracked one egg right on the snow. IT TRULY WAS AN EGGSPERIMENT.
Then I took this picture with my egg (and Matt). It was 2:04PM.
Now we just had to wait.
But wait we hardly did. Because LO AND BEHOLD LITERALLY FIVE MINUTES LATER, THE EGG WAS FREEZING.
Look at the little ice forming.
Also it was starting to get thick and weird feeling. It was working.
But also It was the middle of a workday, so I decided I couldn't wait for my pan egg to freeze before my very eyes. I mean, a watched pot never boils! So the egg was moved to a safe and secure location behind some branches while I went inside to "work." Also like I said it was freezing, I couldn't stay out there.
An hour passed and I had almost forgotten about my egg outside. It was time to go check on it. AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT WAS A SIGHT TO BE SEEN.
