>transparent cooked egg

When we cook the clear egg white, we all know what happens. Can you imagine a transparent cooked egg white? Apparently it's all about the pH and temperature.

In a nutshell, in an eggshell in this case, the recipe is this. Chefs would marinate the eggs in a special alkaline solution made with salt and wood ash for 8 days. Then it's cooked in very low heat (160F/70C) for 10 minutes. The eggs set to a golden yolk and transparent, colorless white.

Abracadabra.
