I ♥ these hard boiled eggs~
We watch a French TV show...Kampaï.. every week ..and last week they featured these eggs..Dr.Richard Béliveau is an expert on Cancer and Nutrition.Lately he was on a team of doctors that invented medication that can penetrate the brain and cure~.. (brain tumors etc) It was very interesting to hear him talk about this..it shows great hope for Parkinson's ,Alzheimer's.. certain types of cancers.. The medication is presently being reviewed by the FDA.
He is humble and so smart.. Just a pleasure to watch ..his co -hosts are a chef Stefano Faita .. the owner of Dante,(the son),a fabulous Italian Quincaillerie.. that features an eclectic mix of high end kitchen items in the heart of the Jean -Talon market area.. and other things:)And a well known "vedette" ,Mitsou..
They make an enjoyable team.. and their guests are always interesting..
These sounded a bit different than our regular tea stained eggs.. And I love the look of Star Anise:)
Boil your eggs ap 10 mins.. ..Cool... crack gently by hand and return to a pot ..
Cook in a mixture of black tea..soya sauce and star anise~I cooked mine for 1 hr..on gentle..When you peel them they are so pretty.. a hint of soya and anise.. dipped in a lime curry mayo..they're an added treat at lunch~Everyone turns out differently~ I omitted the salt in my mixture as my soya salt was salted.
