๐Ÿฅš PERFECT SOFT BOILED EGGS
In small saucepan, bring enough water to completely cover the eggs to a rolling boil. Reduce temperature to med and when the water is at a low simmer, gently add eggs. Avoid dropping them in the pot as they may crack.

Cook chicken eggs for 6 min (or duck eggs for 7 min) uncovered. I like to stir them every few minutes to prevent the yolk cooking more on one side.

If you prefer hard boiled (but not chalky super done yolks), increase time to 9min for chicken eggs and 11min for duck eggs.

Once cooked, drain out the boiling water and fill the pot with cold water. I personally don’t do an ice bath because I don’t want my eggs cold to eat.

Crack the eggs gently all the way around and put in the pot of cold water to allow water to get under the membrane. Leave eggs for 5 min, peel gently under running water and enjoy.
