How to cook the perfect “soft yolk egg” every time
What makes a big difference in all the “recipes” for the perfect runny yolk egg, is that people rarely talk about the temperature of the egg before it’s used. If you take the eggs out of the fridge or if you have left them on the counter after a hot day is not at all the same.
USING COLD EGGS out of the fridge or out in a cold weather. Place the eggs in a pan with a sprinkle of rock salt.
Pour boiling water over them very slowly. Heat and when bubbles appear on top, let boil for 6 MINUTES.
Cool down under cold running water. Peeling them in running water helps as well. USING ROOM TEMPERATURE EGGS if the room is warmer than a fridge ;) Place the eggs in a pan and pour boiling water over them.
Heat and when bubble appears on top, let boil for 5 MINUTES.
Cool down under cold running water. Peeling them in running water helps as well.
