Steaming is especially good for anything that is vegetable. The flavor is left intact and you tend to use less seasoning on steamed food.

Guess I'll have to pull out the old steamer I never use. I had forgotten about its usefullness. Thanks all!

Speaking of steaming, my new favorite way of eating steamed broccoli is to sprinkle and mix with olive oil, sriracha sauce, ground pepper, and Parmesan cheese.  All amounts to taste, of course.

Spud, thanks for your compliment on the Lucifer eggs pic. Seemed high time to update. Taking my own pi means no copyright issue.

i never measure what goes into the Lucifer eggs yolk mixture. It's a spoon of mayo, a big squirt of mustard, a small squirt of Sriracha, a pinch of salt, and some finely diced onion. Usually I underestimate the mayo and mustard and add dome more. Instead of paprika, I dust the top with cayenne, to make thrm more devilish.

Update on steaming potatoes - they were also perfect. The flavor seemed better, more potatoey, probably psychological.

The other thing I learned with the Lucifer eggs is, to make them stand upright, cut off small slice of the rounded hottom end. That makes it flat snd it stands up nicely, Just learned that today.

Steaming is an excellent way of cooking and I need to be doing it more often. I think steamed food is better for you and keeps more vitamins in.

Those eggs at the top of the page  look delicious!

QM, so far, so good! The eggs came out perfect. I usually keep them at least a week before boiling - it helps with the perling. These were not as old.

Worked for the pitatoes, too.

Teo things I learned today about cooking.

1. Instead of hard boiling eggs, they can be steamed. The advantages of steaming are supposedly they peel easier (mine did), the yolks are a prettier yellw with no grey edge (mine were), and if they are cracked, the egg remains intact and does not ooze its innards into the boiling water. At least with this one try, all 3 of those were true.

Since I had the steamer out, I steamed potatoes too. I was having issues with hone-grown potatoes popping like big messy popcorn when boiling, even when I jabbed them with a fork. Steaming worked for them too.

Im an old guy who still has a lot to learn about cooking,

I dont understand McDonalds using worms in their hamburgers, Worm cost $35 a pound. Im sure beef is much less.
