Perfectly boiled eggs!

Green sulphur smell and taste can really ruin boiled eggs in salads and deviled egg dishes. So if you want only delicious, bright yellow yokes, follow these steps:
1. Boil water *, enough to cover eggs, don't add eggs until it is rolling.
2. Pierce the fat end of the eggs with pin or sharp knife, you just need a pressure relief hole.
3. Carefully lower pierced eggs into boiling water.
4. Set timer for 12 minutes of boiling the eggs.
5. After 12 minutes, turn off stove, pour out water with eggs in pot and shake the eggs around pot to crack them.
6. Add ice water to the pot with the cracked eggs and let stand for three minutes.
7. Peel eggs under running water.
8. Enjoy delicious boiled eggs with fluffy yellow yokes!
* Note: If you have hard water, add a tablespoon of vinegar to the boiling water. If not sure, add anyway, it won't hurt.

Correct way to boil an egg at 9000 ft

Your elevation shouldn't be an issue but a pressure cooker could help. Add a tablespoon of club soda to the water.

My car has a rich gas smell then when it warms up smells like rotten eggs does it have something to do with the cadillac converter?

The rich gas smell is probably due to injector problems. The rotten egg smell is sulphur in the fuel, which reacts to the catalytic converter. The rich smell would need to be fixed first by checking the injectors and the engine computer.

Why does my Navigator smell like rotten eggs and misses when running?

Because you fail to do routine Preventative Maintenance

You do not change spark plugs every 3 years
Front oxygen sensors at 100,000 miles
Remove & mail your injectors away-- for Ultra Sonic
Cleaning, at about 150,000 miles or 12 years

Now the exhaust converter is ruined,thus the rotten egg
smell (sulphur dioxide) also from failed cop ignition coils
& thus rich fuel trim & ruined converter

Lost of work needs to be done there, before you can replace
the converters

It will take $1,500 min to straighten out those issues

dishes smell like fish

   Hi, I've been scanning this for awhile as I have this problem on and off. I have watched what I have been cooking and have come to the conclusion it's to do with eggs.  I always noticed it when we had eggs ( they are fed with ground up fish) so changed to vegetarian  fed  chicken eggs and problem got better, I only notice it now if I use a salad cream or mayonnaise type products with egg added in the ingredients and I hand wash these away from all other items.  I have noticed many comments on hygiene, but if you have this problem you become a cleaning nut trying to get rid of it. I always clean with vinegar and bleach and it did not work with this one. Hope this helps
