    Use fresh eggs no more than three to four days old if possible

    Put about four litres of water into a pot and bring to the boil on high heat with a generous pinch of salt and two table spoons of vinegar

    Crack your eggs into the pot as close to the water’s surface as possible being careful not to burn yourself

    When the water starts to make large bubbles at the top, turn your heat down to control your temperature

    After about two minutes, the eggs should be set enough to lift out of the water to check their firmness. If they are formed but very soft and ‘jiggly’ 在中间, place them back into the water until they are slightly firmer
