Boiling Egg

Egg Salad
By Lisa Lavery

My eggs are so fresh (sometimes laid the day of use) that this method of boiling an egg wont work. For me the best method is
Place the egg(s) into cold water. Bring to boil. Lower heat to a rolling boil for 3 - 3+1/2mins. Lift egg out with a slotted spoon. The faster the shell dries the harder the egg is boiled. If you want hard boiled eggs the shell should dry immediately. If it doesn't dry instantly return to heat for a few more seconds - up to one minute - then try again.
