Today I am going to present to you an alternative method of boiling eggs that I find more efficient and quicker in comparison to the standard way, which is boiling it in a pan.
Eggs are a good, healthy source of energy, especially boiled eggs. So try to implement this into your weekly meals in reasonably amounts.
Note : This tutorial will show how to boil 2-4 eggs at a time. Adjust times for additional eggs.
Materials/Apparatus : Kettle, eggs, empty bowl, water, timer.
1. Gently place the eggs in the kettle. Avoid dropping them in to prevent cracking them.
2. Fill kettle with water to about 2 inches above the eggs. Ensure eggs are fully submerged.
3. Start the kettle.
4. Switch off the kettle just as you start to see the water bubbling. ( Time varies from kettle to kettle - a good kettle can boil within a few minutes )
5. Leave eggs in the kettle for 4-5 minutes.
6. Empty the water into the sink and place eggs in an empty bowl.
7. Fill the bowl with cold water and allow eggs to settle for 1 minute.
8. Take out eggs and EAT.
Total time : Approximately 9 minutes.
- Using this method will leave the yoke solid but not dry. ( like a lightly fried egg yoke )
- If you like your yoke runny - reduce the time you leave the eggs in the kettle to 2 minutes.
- The first few attempts may result in failure after which you will learn to boil your eggs perfectly without overdoing it!
- This technique might not be for everyone but it works for me.
- Kettle may need rinsing after usage.
Disclaimer : I. hereby, withdraw any responsibility for exploded eggs or damage caused using this technique.
Warning: If the egg floats in water instead of sinking, throw away the egg. It is no longer edible and has gone off. ( Thanks BorR )
