How to hard boil an egg
Well, somehow I managed to make it through 25 years of life without ever having hard boiled an egg. Yes, I can hear you judging me, and, frankly, I don't blame you, but hard-boiled eggs have never been that high on my favourite foods list, so I never bothered to figure it out. However, last night our salad was looking a little sad as there wasn't a hell of a lot of interesting veges or fun extras to add to it, so I thought I'd give hard boiling an egg a go ... and it was ridiculously easy!
Here's what I did:
- Grab your eggs (I went with two)
- Put them in a small pot
- Cover them in cold water
- Pop the lid on
- Put them on the stove at high heat
- Wait until the water is boiling well
- Turn the heat off
- Leave the eggs in the pot of water on the stove for 10ish minutes
- Drain the water
- Run the eggs under cold water
- Start the cracking and peeling process
I seriously thought I'd buggered it up when I went to do the cracking and peeling, as when I banged the eggs to make a starting spot for the peeling, it felt very soft. However, they came out perfect — and here's the evidence of how stoked I was with the outcome! Now to learn how to poach eggs (stop your judging!).
