Boil The Perfect Egg – How To

As we all know, boiling the perfect egg can be as hard as putting toothpaste back in the tube – or is it?

Picture this; you set everything up perfectly for a nice runny yolk, you have everything laid out, the soldiers are nice and straight, you’re armed with your favourite egg cup and you’ve found a spoon small enough to fit inside the egg. So far so excellent, eh? Incorrect! You go give the egg a tap with the spoon and it breaks because the egg is harder than rock. Guess what? There is no need to despair, with my fantastic egg boiling tips; your hopes of the perfect boiled egg needn’t evaporate with the boiling water.
