How To Boil An Egg

eggs to fill pan
water
salt

In a heavy pot that will maintain its heat, cover eggs with room temperature water.  (Water should be at least 1 inch over the eggs.)  Bring water and eggs to a gentle boil.  Add 1 teaspoon fine sea salt (or, a splash of vinegar).  Cover pot and allow eggs to boil for 2 minutes.

For a custardy yolk:

Turn off the heat and allow eggs to cook in the hot water for 8-10 minutes.

For a slightly firmer  yolk:

Allow eggs to boil gently (covered) for an additional minute or two.  Then, allow to sit in covered pot for 10-15 minutes.

Then:

Carefully, strain eggs and cover with room temperature water.  When cool to the touch, peel or refrigerate.  Use as needed.
