Recipe Notes

To safely pasteurize your eggs at home, simply place the eggs in a pot of water and heat on the stovetop until the water temperature reaches 140F. Heat the eggs submerged in water at 140F, and no higher than 142F, for 3 minutes before removing from the hot water and rinsing with cold water.
