Why I Put Egg Shells in My Coffee, Don’t You?

Well, it finally happened.  Like Job, what I feared came upon me.  That dreaded ulcer or GERT or whatever.  What it meant is that when I drank my beloved coffee, I paid for it.  It became painful.  Did that stop me?  Of course not.  But thank God, I found an answer in something that I have been throwing away.  Yes, the egg shell.

The egg shell neutralized the acid in the coffee.  If I am making instant, I just put a piece of egg shell into the coffee with the powder.  You may want to crush the shell first.  For regular coffee, put the crushed egg shells with the coffee.  By the way, the coffee and the egg shells are great for your garden.

To store egg shells:  Wash the egg shells with warm water and soap.  Rinse.  Put out to dry.  They are ready to use.  You can also grind them in your coffee grinder and store in a container.

You can use egg shells when making soups, etc.  In this way, you can get the calcium that’s in the egg shell.  Put the egg shells in a net and drop in the soup.  When the soup is finished, you can take out the net.
