|hard boiled egg|
While boiling an egg sounds simple enough, over cooking the egg makes the egg tough and rubbery. When over-boiled, the protein hardens and a green ring forms around the yolk.
For soft-boiled or half-boiled egg, 3 to 5 minutes.
For soft-yolk egg, 6 to 8 minutes.
For hard-boiled egg, 11 to 15 minutes.
For peeling the hard boiled egg, it is best to roll the egg over a hard surface after cracking the shell. This will separate the membrane from the egg for easy peeling.
