- 6 eggs
- Fill pot with enough water to fully submerge eggs. Bring to a boil over high heat.
- When the water comes to rolling boil, gently place the eggs with a spoon or strainer, one at a time. Lower heat to simmer.
- Boil according to your preference of boiled eggs:
6 minutes for a little runny, jammy soft boiled eggs.
7 minutes for firmer soft boiled eggs.
9-10 minutes for hard boiled eggs.
- Transfer them immediately into a bucket of ice water to cool off and stop the cooking process.
- Cool them completely (at least 15 minutes in an ice bath) before peeling.
- Use room temperature eggs. Take the eggs out of your refrigerator 30 minutes before boiling them. This prevents the shell from cracking, which is often caused by a rapid change of temperature.
- A tip for peeling the eggs easily and seamlessly once cooked? Add in salt and vinegar to your boiling water.
- To peel the eggs without any scratches or cracks, gently tap the entire surface of the eggs on the counter or table then gently peel off.
