How to prepare eggs

Before boiling, remove the eggs from the refrigerator for about an hour so that they warm up to room temperature. If this is not done, the shell may crack during cooking.

Be sure to rinse the eggs under running water so that no dirt remains on the surface.

You can also pierce the egg with a pin or needle on the blunt side so that the finished product is easier to clean. This should be done carefully so that the tip enters only a few millimeters and does not damage the inner protective film. If there is a crack in the shell, it is better to refuse cooking.
