How To Make A Perfect Soft-Boiled Egg In One Attempt

How To Make A Perfect Soft-Boiled Egg In One Attempt

We’ve all been there – wasting eggs because we over- or under-boiled them. It’s so hard to get a soft-boiled egg to come out exactly like we want it to in one try. Use the methods in this video to make a perfect egg, every time!

Common mistakes to avoid when cooking a soft-boiled egg

Here are a few common mistakes people make that ruin their soft-boiled egg:

  • Covering the pot with a lid. Keep it uncovered and stir them around to cook evenly.
  • Covering less than ~2/3 of the eggs. You want to make sure you cook the whole thing!
  • Not boiling the water before adding the eggs. Starting in cold water will hard boil them.
  • Using cold, refrigerated eggs. Use room temperature eggs! Eggs in the fridge will need longer to cook.
  • Not cooling the egg in ice water. This part is important to keep the egg from cooking itself.

Tips to make it easier to enjoy a soft-boiled egg

  • Skip the peeling. You can just cut the top off and eat out of the shell with a spoon!
  • Blow into the egg to remove the shell. Poke a hole in the top of the egg with a toothpick and blow into it or run water into it to remove the shell more easily.
  • No egg cup? Use rice! Pouring some rice in a small bowl will allow you to rest the egg upright in the rice so it won’t fall over.

Keep in mind that you don’t need to marinade the eggs or add any seasoning if you don’t want the Japanese style. The cooking process will still be the same!

10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

Perhaps one of the hardest things a 4-year-old kid can learn is to tie his shoes. On the contrary, for adults like us, it’s the simplest and probably the most boring activity we can think of. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to register for a seminar on how to lace shoes, right!

It’s obvious, you don’t even need to use your brain when tying shoelaces. Look back up, I said most b-o-r-i-n-g a while ago when I mentioned lacing shoes up. But I will take that back. Why? Because when I saw the post from Diply featuring videos of lacing up shoes artistically, I realize how intricate, complicated, and creative it is to lace up shoes. That is if you do it like the way we do it on the featured videos.
