Recipe adapted from Quiches, Kugels, and Couscous: My Search for Jewish Cooking in France by Joan Nathan

These creamy, caramel-colored eggs can be served at your seder, for Shabbat, or any time as a first course chopped with sautéed onions.

Ingredients

  • Sand
  • Large eggs

 

Directions

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.  In a heavy Dutch oven, layer sand (can be purchased at a garden store) with whole eggs.  Use as many eggs as you would like but make sure that they do not touch.  Totally cover the eggs with the sand.  Close the Dutch oven and bake overnight.

Reminder: The ingredients in a recipe determine if it should be eaten every day, some days, or on special occasions. It's up to you and you doctor to determine what can be part of a healthy diet for you and any special needs you may have.

    One time I tried to cook eggs in the oven at 325f, and I inadvertently left them in for too long. The shell proved very difficult to remove. If the shell difficult to remove from these eggs that are cooked overnight?

    Hi Rich,
    Thanks for your interest. I went straight to Joan Nathan who says you shouldn’t have a problem if you soak them in very cold water for about 15 minutes to half an hour when you take them out of the oven. She uses ice water. I also would add that probably 8 to 10 hours would constitute “overnight” so you wouldn’t want them to go too much longer. Let us know how your huevos haninados turn out!

Move Over, Kale Chips! Kale Buds Are Here

High Tunnel farming caught my eye because its extended growing season adds to the amount of local produce we get. While farm manager Aviva Asher was tidying up the winter crop to make way for spring, I discovered another benefit of local growing: use what you’ve got.
