The legend of the magically hard-boiled egg is widespread and precedes written history. It is said that some ancient peoples managed to preserve eggs by boiling them so vigorously that the eggshells shattered while the egg was still in its liquid state. Legend has it that those who walked on eggs before their shells cracked were granted some form of protection or immunity.
