How Is This Raw Chicken Egg Standing Whole Without Its Shell?

By Jesus Diaz on at

What kind of sorcery is this? How is this egg standing whole without its shell? Apparently, the inner membrane—the thin layer that you can see stuck to the hard shell when you boil an egg—is strong enough to hold it without breaking its shape. But how can you do this?

According to author Biswarup Ganguly—an Indian photographer who works at the National Council of Science Museums—"the white eggshell has been removed by dipping a normal chicken egg into vinegar for 48 hours."

I have to try this right now.
