Eggs are simple and cheap, but to master how to cook them takes a bit of skill -- or at least attention. With all the different sizes (large, extra large, jumbo etc.), fresh vs. less fresh, and any number of different cooking techniques, eggs are easier to mess up than get right it seems.
Today I hard boiled a dozen eggs, and though they were very well cooked, they were a bit over cooked for my taste. (I like a soft core on my yolks.) When I hard boil eggs, I usually take the the water to boil and then let the eggs sit for 7-10 minutes based upon size. Large eggs (7 min) and extra jumbo whatever (10 min). Then I do the ice bath thing. For some reason I took large eggs to 10 minutes this time.
Anybody have any egg cooking secrets?
