How to Boil an Egg

Step 1: 

Take out the eggs from refrigerator and place them in a single layer in a pot, close it with fitting lid.

Step 2: 

Cover the eggs with water at least 1 inch above the top of the eggs.

Step 3: 

Place the pot over to medium heat, uncovered, and boil until the water is boiling.

Step 4: 

Remove the pot from the heat, cover it and let it stand for 12 minutes to hard-boil and 6 minutes to soft boil.

Step 5:

Using a heatproof slotted spoon, scoop out the eggs and place them in a bowl of ice water. For 10 minutes.

Step 6:

Hold up the egg and slowly crack on the table gently, until you see crack line. Slowly peel off the skin, and you’re ready to serve.

Tips: If you notice the white seeping out of a cracked egg during boiling, add a little vinegar to the water. This can helps the proteins in the egg white coagulate faster, sealing the crack.

HAPPY COOKING!
