How to Boil an Egg
Place your eggs in a pan and cover with water.
Turn the heat up to high and quickly bring to a boil.
Watch the eggs carefully and at first boil cover the pan. Then, remove from heat. Set a timer for 12 minutes.
After 12 minutes, pour out the hot water and cover the eggs with cold water (sometimes I add ice to guarantee very cold water). This is to stop the cooking process.
Peel the eggs, slice in half and sprinkle with salt.
