Swedish Coffee

1 egg
1 cup cold water, divided
1 cup regular grind coffee
6 cups boiling water

1. Use a Graniteware (enamel) coffee pot (or any mixing bowl large enough for coffee, egg and 1/2 cup water)
2. Wash egg, break it into a small bowl (including shell), and beat slightly.
3. Add 1/2 cup cold water, the 1 cup ground coffee, and the whole egg, including (crushed) egg shell, and mix thoroughly.
4. Turn into coffee pot, pour on boiling water, and stir.
5. Place on front of range and boil for 3 minutes. (If not boiled, coffee is cloudy. If boiled too long, too much tannic acid is developed.)
6. Add remaining 1/2 cup cold water, which perfects clearing. (Cold water, which is heavier than hot, sinks to the bottom and carries the grounds with it.)
7. After coffee has settled, serve at once.
