Prepare a soft-boiled egg

In order to prepare a soft boiled egg, you will need the following: a bowl of icy water, eggs, white vinegar, salt, and a pot.


Place of pot of water on the stove. Bring the water to a boil. Add salt and vinegar to the water. Carefully place the eggs into boiling water. Allow the eggs to boil for 8 minutes. 8 minutes is the average time for a medium sized egg. You may need a little more or less time, depending on the size of the egg. Remove them from the pot and submerge them in icy water. This will stop the egg from cooking. The vinegar and the salt will make it easier to peel the egg. Serve.
