- 2 large eggs
- 2 medium sauce pans
1. Place one egg in a pan, cover with water and bring to boiling.
2. Allow egg 1 to boil (not dry) for 10 minutes.
3. Place egg #2 in a pan, cover with water and bring to a boil.
4. Turn off heat when boiling begins.
5. Let stand, covered for 15 minutes
6. Run cold water over both eggs to stop cooking process.
7. Crack eggs once cool to handle and cut open.
8. Taste and observe.
Texture and appearance:
- The white is white
- The yolk is yellow
- Both the yolk and the white are solid - nothing runny
- The white is smooth, slippery, and shiny
- The yolk is not shiny, it's a little dry
Which strategy was better?
- If this lab would have gone perfectly, the texture and color of the eggs would have been different according to how long they were cooked. However, something didn't go quite right and the eggs both looked exactly the same. Therefore, we can not conclude which strategy is better because both eggs turned out the same. However, in this case the 10 minute strategy would be better because it cooked the eggs faster. :)
