MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Upper Michigan Today is going back to the basics.

When Elizabeth Peterson found out her co-host Tia Trudgeon didn’t know how to boil an egg, she jumped at the opportunity to teach her the basic skill.

But first, stories of the day.

UMT stories of the day include a sure sign that spring is on the way, a new poet laureate, and Rubik's Cube facts.

Now, back to boiling.

Elizabeth says she brings water, vinegar, and eggs to a boil on high heat. Once the water is brought to a rolling boil, she turns the stove off but leaves the eggs on for 18 minutes. She then removes the eggs from the warm water and blanches them.
