Day 240 - How to Boil an Egg 101

This is not as simple as it seems. At least not if you like perfectly yellow yolks every time--none of that greenish/grayish outside. A few simple steps observed religiously each time you need a hard boiled egg will give you fail-proof results. (This is the prelude to Cauliflower Polonaise, tomorrow's recipe feature!)

How to Boil an Egg 101

  • Begin with a cold egg and a pot. Place the cold egg into the empty pot and cover with cold water by at least one inch. Just trust me. 

  •  Add 1 tsp white vinegar and bring to a rolling boil.


  • Allow to boil for only 1 minute.


  •  Remove from the heat, cover the pot, and set a timer for 20 minutes.



  • When your timer tells you 20 minutes  have passed, remove the egg to an ice water bath and allow to cool there (about 10 minutes).












Voila! Perfect egg every time! And this beautifully boiled egg will come in handy for tomorrow's dinner side dish--Cauliflower Polonaise.
