Egg Roasting


Roasting, as in leaving the eggs in the pan until the water boils out, and
then hearing that funny crackling sound. Somebody else must be familiar with
this scenario!  Actually, you usually put a roasted egg on the Seder Plate.


The Roasted Egg is symbolic of the festival sacrifice made in biblical
times. On Passover, an additional sacrifice (the Paschal lamb) was offered
as well. The egg is also a traditional symbol of mourning, and has been
interpreted by some as a symbolic mourning for the loss of the Temple. Since
the destruction of the Temple in the year 70 C.E., neither the festival
sacrifice nor the special Passover sacrifice could be offered. It is also a
symbol of spring - the season in which Passover is always celebrated. In
many households, it is customary to use a brown egg on the Seder plate. The
egg should be baked or roasted if possible." from

Chris -
After snow yesterday, we are back to sunny and 60 today.

I've never heard of roasting eggs; didn't know you could do that.  It's been
awhile since I hardboiled eggs, but as I recall, you bring them to a boil
and then remove from heat.  After several minutes you remove them from the
hot water, run cold water over them, and peel - if desired.  You don't
actually boil them for any period of time.

Sounds like you had a nice festive Passover.
