How do you boil eggs?
First put a pot of water to boil.
Next, remove cold eggs from fridge and immerse in very warm water for 5 minutes. [The temperature from too cold to boiling would cause the egg to expand suddenly and crack.] Holding the egg tightly in your left hand, point the FAT END (not the pointy end) of the egg up. With you right hand, make a tiny hole into that end of the egg, being very careful not to insert the needle more than 16" into the egg, or you will break the Inner Cell Membrane and everything will leak out of the hole. [You are creating a tiny vent thru the Shell and Outer Membrane in order to let out the steam, to prevent breakage.] Now using a slotted spoon slip the eggs into the boiling water .. and immediately cover the pot and remove from heat. Do not uncover until ready to serve. Ready means:
5 - 6 minutes for Coddled Easy 7 - 8 minutes for Coddled Medium 10 minutes for Coddled Hard.
A coddled egg will have a softer albumen (white part) than one boiled.
Recently I bought an egg boiler and I this device gives me a fantastic morning time. At first, you just pour water, it like little bit, medium or more that you want. Then close the lid and switch on. Just relax the eggs are automatically boiled and will alert you and shut off.
I spend a beautiful morning with this device. However, if you would like to know more about this device, can check out the following link:
Put your eggs into a pan and cover with cold water. Put cover on the pan and heat until boiling. Turn off the heat, leave the cover on and let sit for 15 minutes. Cool as quickly as you can under cold running water. Also, as soon as you can handle them, crack and peel. They peel easier that way
The easy way to do them and the yolks will not turn dark on you is: Put your eggs into a pot of cold water..Bring the water to a boil, cover and turn off the heat. Leave them alone for 12 to 15 minutes, then cool as quickly as possible and peel.
YES, you put eggs in boiling water.
Also, when it is time to peel them. Roll them on the counter and then just peel them off in one continuous peel. It is easiest to do this right after they come out and are put in cold water.
Dear abdullaha, I do as stated above but I add a little vinegar for congealing if one should crack and some salt to make the eggs a tad buoyant in the water. Sue...good luck
Put some watter into a pot then put some eggs into it. Let is simmer in there for at least 15 minute. Remember to keep the lid on.
