We always used to lick the batter off the bowl when we were little. I remember we'd make brownies with like 5 eggs in them and my sisters would take turns licking the fudgy coating off the inside of the bowl. I don't think it was till well into middle school or high school that I thought about salmonella poisoning. I suppose the problem could be solved by buying eggs that have been sterilized, but I tend to opt for the cage free ones instead and I'm afraid I still lick the bowl. Not with the innocent abandon of childhood, but whatever I'm cooking I usually take a taste or two of the batter just to make sure it's good. As of yet I haven't gotten sick. I hope I'm building up an immunity instead of just getting lucky.
