    @weklund: egg salad patina? Scratching my head... is this a German style egg salad with a vinegar content? If not I'm trying to understand what might cause the patina? Or is that simply a descriptive term?

    Very easy process. Boil 2 eggs, peel while still warm and dice/chop fine. Place diced egg in a small zip lock bag and added the Raw CU light and seal. Remove excess air and roll tightly to cover the CU body. Let sit for 3 hours and remove from baggy. Rinse with soapy water.

    That's all there is to it.

    Thanks. I can't help but wonder chemically what is in the eggs to react and cause the patina? I know from lab experience that when hydrogen sulfide is generated it sometime is characterized as a 'rotten egg' smell. But I've never noticed it with hard boiled eggs - my preferred way of preparing eggs for easy consumption! Maybe its just there in low enough concentrations not to smell but sufficient to bring on the reaction...

    Anyone reading this want to chime in? Its just a curious thing.
