I received my Kickstarter reward Nomiku immersion circulator last week, the night before I was leaving for vacation. I didn’t let myself even open the box because I was afraid of getting sucked into trying it when I really needed to get to sleep.
Being the egg yolk fan that I am, I’ve been anxious to try the recipe for Deep Fried Egg Yolks that I saw in the web version primer kindly provided by the founders for the backers to look at while waiting for their unit to ship.
The unit seemed to keep a stable temperature as specified and the yolks came out perfect (though I popped one, being too vigorous when pinching off a chalaza). I was able to rescue it by proceeding quickly to the breading and frying.
Served the yolks with homemade bacon and hash browns fried in duck fat. I’m very pleased with the result and the Nomiku.
