Swedish Egg Coffee
I live on coffee! I drink it all day; love it hot or iced. What I don’t like is bitter coffee. You know the type that you get a whiff of cigarette smoke smell right before you take a sip…ugh and more ugh.
My daughter Katrina introduced me to a new way of making coffee – while adding an egg – shell and all!! OK…I am game to try most things so sign me up.
I understand that this is the standard way of making coffee in many parts of the world, however it was new to me.
1 Egg – shell included
1/2 cup regular ground coffee
9 cups boiling water
1 cup cold water
Bring 9 cups of water to boil in a large pan
While waiting on water to boil – break egg in bowl and mix well with coffee. Yep, leave the shell in the mix too. The egg, shell and coffee mixture will look like brownie batter or potting soil.
Once water is boiling, scoop egg coffee mixture into pot and boil for three (3) minutes
After coffee mixture has boiled for 3 minutes pour one cup of cold water. The cold water will cause the coffee grounds and egg to clump together and sink to the bottom.
Strain and enjoy!
For stronger coffee, let mixture rest for a few minutes before straining or using. I prefer my coffee a little stronger so I let it rest while I gather my mug, Splenda and creamer.
On a side note, I have discovered I can use less sweetener and creamer with this coffee as compared to my usual instant or drip blend.
