Even simple culinary manipulations need attention and care. With the help of tips and observations, you will learn how to cook eggs correctly and rationally. To do this, follow a few rules.

- Use the kitchen timer without fail. Some housewives guess the time, as a result, boiled eggs do not correspond to the degree of readiness.
- Use a small pan for cooking. In roomy dishes they beat.
- Often, eggs crack during cooking. On the dull side there is an air cushion, with increasing temperature, pressure rises, which leads to the appearance of cracks. Avoid this by piercing with a needle in this place.
- Do not turn on a strong fire. To cook enough medium heat. If you do not use during cooking clock or a timer, I do not advise cooking for a long time, since the yolks will turn out black and rubber.

How to cook soft-boiled egg

Not every novice cook knows how to cook a soft-boiled egg. In practice, difficulties arise in the cooking process.
- egg 4 PC
- water 1 l
- Do not cook immediately after removing from the refrigerator. A cold egg, once in boiling water, instantly bursts. The result is a kind of omelet.
- Removing from the refrigerator, leave for a quarter of an hour on the table. During this time, warm up to room temperature. Such a temperature difference is harmless to the shell.
- If you want to cook soft-boiled, use the clock, since every minute in cooking is extremely important.
- For cooking, I recommend using small dishes, otherwise during the cooking process they will float in water and collide with each other. The result is cracks.
- For proper cooking, put the soft-boiled pot into a compact pan and add boiling water so that it covers the product by a centimeter. After the dishes, put on medium heat.
- After boiling water, cook for a minute. Then remove the pan from the stove and cover. I recommend getting out of the water after 7 minutes. The result is eggs with a cooked protein and a liquid yolk.
Fill with cold water before cooking. In this case, cook after boiling water for three minutes. In this case, before boiling water, I recommend turning on a large fire, and after that - reduce to an average level.
Hard boiled egg
When people go on nature or on a trip, they take food with them to eat. Usually sandwiches, sausages, cookies, thermos with tea and boiled eggs.
Continuing the story, I will tell hard boiling technology. I think you have cooked this dish many times. Did you do it right?
Take good eggs.Place them in a pot of water and observe the behavior. For cooking, use those that have surfaced. As for the eggs that were at the bottom of the dishes, they are rotten.
- Fold in a pan and fill with water so that it completely covers them. I recommend using cold water so as not to be digested.
- Add a little salt to the pan. As a result, cleaning will be simplified. Salt accelerates the coagulation of the protein, so that it is separated from the shell.
- Cover the pot and bring the water to a boil. Then turn off the stove, leaving the pan on it for fifteen minutes. During this time, the eggs are cooked.
- Be sure to keep track of time. If overexposed, they will lose color and get an unpleasant odor. If you hold it in water for less time, you will get soft-boiled eggs.
- It remains to finish cooking. Make sure cooking is easy. Put the product on the table and twist. If they turn well, then the dish is ready. Otherwise, cook again.
Upon completion of cooking, be sure to cool the eggs by pouring cold water. Due to the temperature difference, the protein will separate from the shell. Just do not keep long in the water. Eat the finished product or use it as an ingredient for preparing complex dishes. I add half a cool boiled egg to a plate with borsch. Very tasty.

I'll tell you how to cook it. I get evenly boiled protein, loose and tender yolk. If you listen to the recommendations, you will achieve the same effect.
The whole secret of a delicious dish is to use fresh eggs, which are no more than four days old. An old product spreads during cooking and becomes like a mash.
- Cook poached eggs in barely boiling water. Put a small low saucepan on a small fire and pour 2.5 centimeters of boiling hot water from kettle. Then add salt and a little vinegar. These ingredients will not allow the protein to spread.
- Gently break the eggs into a bowl. Stir boiling water with a spoon and pour into the funnel that forms. Cook a minute.

How to clean eggs quickly and correctly
In conclusion, I’ll talk about cleaning eggs. It is not always possible to get beautiful peeled eggs, because there are little secrets here. Before cleaning, I recommend completely covering the shells with cracks. This will facilitate the cleaning process.
Start cleaning from the big end. In this case, I recommend doing the procedure under running water. As a result, even small particles of the shell are washed off and will not fall on the plate. Remember, boiled eggs that are recently packaged are poorly cleaned.
The following procedure allows to simplify the cleaning procedure. Immediately after boiling from boiling water, transfer to a bowl of ice water for two to three minutes. In this case, the shell is better behind protein.
Beautiful peeled eggs are not always required. To decorate New Year's salads use eggs passed through a grater. And in this case, beauty does not play a role.
Use the tips and your dishes will be chic, tasty and beautiful. See you!
