Ragman, your egg pics are fab.

Who knew eggs could be so photogenic?

I'd still use the eggs, dp.

Ragman -- I'm glad you backed off from the 8 - 10 minute timing. I've always used 4 -5 and they're fine. A 'three minute egg' was never quite cooked enough for me, but another minute or so is perfect.

How long after an egg comes out of a hens ass does it get into those cartons at the store?



This expiration date business, I'd never thought of it. When I buy eggs, I just have a foggy notion that they were laid at some point "in the past"

Yes, that 8-minute-timing was my error, as it was for more of hardboiled egg.

You could say this is Eggs-is-tentialism at it's finest

I once tried to boil an egg in a microwave - yeah, what an idiot I know.

Durr.

It exploded and looked like it had bits of chicken inside it and it smelled really bad.

It was revolting.

Put me off eggs for a while.

Please can someone tell me? I always get it wrong.

I like them with a soft yolk.

Do I put the eggs straight into the boiling water or put them in there at the start?

many thanks

you can put the eggs at the start, keep boiling 5minutes after the water boiled.
I like boiled eggs very much.in china there is another type of boiled eggs,called "tea eggs",after egg concreting,knock the egg,let the shell split,for the water filtering in.then put the egg into the tea,keep boiling about 5-10 minute. complete!
tea egg mix with taste of tea and egg.very nice

You show 'em your bank statement but if it's in really good order and it's an ordinary, nonedescript egg, which have thin shells, you have to be careful because they soon get hard.
