Boiling Guide for Quail Eggs

Boiling Guide for Quail Eggs

This is an experiment rather than a recipe. I took the boiling method for this recipe from "Easily Peelable Boiled Eggs", Recipe ID: 401044.


Quail eggs


1. Allow the quail eggs to properly return to room temperature.
2. Boil the water to cook the eggs in (making sure it comes to a complete boil).
3. Use a ladle or spoon to gently lower the eggs into the boiling water.
4. Boil the eggs for however long you like, cool them in an ice bath and then peel away the shell.
5. This egg has been boiled for 2 minutes. The white of the egg has set but the yolk is still runny and will pour out of the egg.
6. I boiled this egg for 2 minutes 30 seconds. The yolk came out soft-boiled.
7. Here I boiled the egg for 3 minutes. The yolk in this egg is still a little soft.
8. This egg has been boiled for 3 minutes 30 seconds and has a hard-boiled yolk.

Story Behind this Recipe

If I search the internet for how long to boil a chicken egg I get plenty of results, but I don't get much information when I search for quail eggs instead. So I decided to try an experiment by myself.
