A perfectly boiled egg

Large eggs.

Rapid boil.

14 minutes.


*Food tip – a little older egg will peel easier, with less skin sticking, since it has has lost some moisture (feels lighter/hollower).

    Is it fact or fiction that if you put boiled eggs immediately in ice water it will prevent them from sticking to the shell? That is an extra step I thought necessary?

    Never heard of that before, but worth a shot. Actually though, the best eggs to use are older eggs that have a little more air. Makes it easier to pull away. Save the fresh ones for omelettes.

    I’ve never heard of this. The reason you put eggs in ice water immediately is to stop the cooking process, otherwise your eggs will become over-cooked.
