Cooking With Hen Eggs 2015 — photo 1 of 39: Preparing to cook a deep-fried egg: I put one cup of oil into a 15-ounce cast-iron melting pot, and stuck a 12-inch deep-fry turkey thermometer into the oil to monitor the temperature. Luckily the thermometer has a clip to hold it, because it was way too long. The mini silicone handle holder helped my fingers not to get fried with the egg! July 2015. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
