Hen egg wash thoroughly with cold water.


Eggs, hen put into cold water. Water with salt to prevent cracking the shells. Soft-boiled egg is ready after 1 minute, but then the egg yolk and protein are not yet cut. Best to wait 2-2.5 minutes. Egg half real power cook 3 to 5 minutes, the protein is then cut in half and the yolk hard. Boiled egg cook for 8-9 minutes, but no longer, because then the egg will be less tasty. Time start to count from the moment of boiling water.


To make it easier to peel the egg from the shell after cooking, pour it with cold water and leave for 3-4 minutes.


Boiled eggs are good for a variety of spreads for sandwiches, salads, soup. Hard-boiled eggs can also be stuffed ham, tuna, salmon, mushrooms and many other ingredients.

Bon appétit!
