First thing, if you want your eggs easier to peel, then use ‘old eggs’.
1. Put your eggs in a single layer in a pot, cover it with an inch of tap water. Add a few drops of vinegar it to help keep it together if ever the shells cracks.
2. Then using medium heat, bring the water to boil. Once it boils, lower down the flame to a simmer for a minute. Then turn the heat off.
3. Let it sit for 11 minutes with the cover on. Don’t open it.
4. It’s done. Some people wash their eggs in tap water to stop cooking but mine never gets over- cooked even if I don’t do that. Or I’m just being lazy.
Or here’s an even easier method I do. In the Philippines where every family cooks rice at least twice a day, this is easier. First, I wash the eggs well, this is very important! In the rice cooker using the steam basket(?), cook it together with rice. The steam will cook it perfectly. Just don’t open the cover or you will lose the steam that will cook the egg. There! Easier.
I just love the gift of learning. So I don’t mind sharing what I know. If I can, I want to learn how to speak Mandarin, play the drums and piano and even study a second degree. So if you have any questions for me, feel free to ask.
Eggs is one of the best christmas gifts for 2011. I just love it. And for me, it’s the thought that counts more. Just as long as you remember me, I’m happy.
