How to make the best hard boiled eggs

Did you know that the best technique for making perfect boiled eggs is ... not to boil them?

But yes! When boiled, the eggs turn gray and rubbery. Their taste does not change, but their appearance, texture and smell are much less pleasant.

The reason is simple: the "alternative" cooking method proposed below is much softer for the delicate flesh of eggs-the equivalent of steaming rather than large broths. When the water boils vigorously, the white (the outside of the egg) will cook much faster than the center, the yellow. This is why the white becomes much too cooked (and less tender) the time that the yellow becomes just enough. The "steaming" method and cold-water cooking give the two parts of the egg a chance to cook evenly!

When the water does not boil for more than a few seconds, naturally-occurring compounds contained in the eggs also do not have time to break free, so that the eggs smell a lot less bad!

Hard egg with shell in microwave. The cientific method

QUESTION . When you try to make an egg with a microwave without removing the shell, the most common is that the egg bursts and makes a mess messing up the whole egg oven duror crumbled and broken shell. Why does it burst in the microwave, and instead, does it burst when we boil it with boiling water?

FACTS . An egg is not a totally watertight object. There are pores in the shell that allow the exchange of gases between the inside and the outside. When heating an egg, the following phenomena occur:
a) The interior liquids are intended to expand and occupy more space.
b) The shell dilates, but not as much as liquids would.
c) The gases in the upper part of the egg increase its pressure.
d) The increase in pressure generated by all of the above causes the gases to exit partly through the pores, allowing the expansion of the liquids.
e) When the coagulation temperature of the clear and yolk proteins reaches approximately 65ºC, there should also be small changes in density, of which I do n…

How and how much should an egg be cooked? Tricks to get the perfect cooked egg

Everyone knows how to bake an egg. And it is something as elementary as to leave an egg for a while in boiling water, remove it, peel it and go. Even those who happen to be a zero to the left in the kitchen certainly can boast about making cooked boiled eggs.

But beyond this basic task, cooking an egg also has its little mysteries. Starting with the time you have to leave the egg cooking to obtain a more or less curdled yolk. Yes, 10 minutes is the standard time stipulated to cook an egg to the point, but beyond this time there is a range of possibilities that can be very useful when it is not about eating a boiled egg without more, but the perfect cooked egg .

How to boil eggs

Everything you wanted to know and nobody has told you about how to cook a hard boiled egg, passed through water or poached according to its characteristics and at its point according to the tastes of each.
 Kitchen Tricks

One of the keys to success in cooking an egg is to take the eggs out of the fridge for a while before putting them to cook. If not, when you put them in the boiling water, they can crack easily. Or put them to cook when the water has not yet warmed.

Another possibility so that they do not break and have leaks is, before putting them in the water, make a small hole with a pin in the base to release the air inside.

You have to put them when the water is already boiling and not cold; thus the same water will make the egg turn. And you can reinforce this effect at the beginning of the cooking by turning them with the help of a spatula.

2-3 minutes. Semiliquid consistency.
