First for a story, The Mossi of Burkina Faso in Africa will not let their children eat eggs for fear they will become thieves! The idea is not that, he who steals an egg will steal an ox, but because he who steals an egg is stealing a chicken. Poultry lives at large in the villages of Africa, laying eggs anywhere. More seriously, the spirits will be offended, for all the poultry the Mossi eat has first to be sacrificed to the local tutelary spirits. Don't worry that is just one of the many countries in sub-Saharan Africa, Ethiopia’s spicy national dish, Doro Wat contains hard-boiled eggs. English influence on South Africa certainly brings them onto the table. Oto (Yams & Eggs) of Ghana is eaten for breakfast on festival mornings. And when it comes to boiling eggs, the biggest problem is that people can easily over-cook them, leading to a dark green color around the yolk, and a somewhat sulfuric taste. This is a method for cooking hard-boiled eggs so that they don't turn out that way.
