How to Make Perfect Jammy Eggs
- Sauce Pan
- 6 eggs
- Bring a medium pot of salted water to a slow boil (it should be more than simmering).
- Gently drop in the eggs, one at a time, leaving a little space between each egg.
- Set the timer for 7 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare an ice bath. Add a few cups of ice to a large bowl, then fill with water.
- One the timer goes off, remove the eggs using a slotted spoon. Set them in the ice bath. This stops the cooking process.
- Allow them to cool enough to handle, but remove them before they're chilled. While they're still a little warm, peel the eggs.
- Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Don't slice them until you're ready to eat them!
