Boil the perfect egg
Place room temperature eggs in a saucepan and fill with cold water, covering the eggs by two centimetres. On a medium to high heat bring to a boil. Turn the heat down. Proceed as follows:
- For soft-boiled eggs, leave the eggs to stand in hot water for one to two minutes.
- For medium-boiled eggs, leave the eggs to stand in hot water for two to three minutes.
- For hard-boiled eggs, leave the eggs to boil for seven minutes. Remove and place in bowl of ice water to prevent the yolk discolouring.
