The 9.5 Minute Hard Boiled Egg

How to make:

Pour water and vinegar into pot. Bring to boil. Add eggs for 9.5 - 10 minutes. Depending on the altitude you live at will determine the time to boil. If you live at sea level - 9.5 minutes will give you a soft, cooked center with a slightly flaky texture. 10 minutes at a high altitude will give you the same result. Once the time is met, place eggs in an ice bath for at least 5 minutes. If you are starving, 2 solid minutes will keep your yolk warm, but keep you from burning your tongue!


  • Desired # eggs - suggest organic, pasture-raised for the most amber & best textured yolk

  • Water (enough to fill a pot that fits all of your eggs with 1 inch of water above)

  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup White vinegar
