The temperature of the eggs is important.
"I keep my eggs room temperature if they're less than two weeks out. If I'm going to use eggs quickly, I keep them at room temperature on the counter in a wire egg basket just like my grandpa did," shares Rach.
Water temperature is also key.
Rach makes sure to put her eggs in cold water before bringing that pot to a boil.
Cook time depends on how you like your eggs.
- For a jammy egg (still gushy in the middle) — 3 minutes
- For a medium egg — 5 minutes
- For a hard-boiled egg (still yellow on the inside) — 11 minutes
Start counting the minutes your egg is cooking AFTER water comes to full rolling boil.
"Once the pot comes to a boil, I put the lid on the pot and I take it off of the burner and count the minutes after the full rolling boil. And the full rolling boil is when I count the time on the egg. That's really important," Rach says.
