How To Boil An Egg
eggs to fill pan
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.
Carefully, strain eggs and cover with room temperature water. When cool to the touch, peel or refrigerate. Use as needed.
