in the wintertime when all the leaves are brown...
There are many unpleasant things going on in the world at present. They are important. They will not, however, be discussed here. You see there is a much more pressing subject that  must  be expressed here and that is :TRYING TO BOIL EGGS IN WINTER.

Boiling eggs in winter. It's a drag. Everyone has rituals. One of mine is 2 soft boiled eggs on toast each morning. That's just the way it is.(Bruce Hornsby will tell you it's true).

I am SICK TO DEATH of them cracking every day and spilling part of their contents out into the saucepan of boiling water to become inedible little stringy bits of shite. What's the solution - leave them out of the fridge? Just not a "leave eggs out of the fridge" type of individual.

The preferred method is : 2 eggs into saucepan of cold water, bring to boil and then reduce back a bit for 5 minutes. This generally produces the best brekky ever.

There was this one time when in a fit of overwhelming tiredness accidentally tried to boil eggs without any water. This only became apparent upon the sound of  loud popping noises from the vicinity of the kitchen(yes, I am blonde as a matter of fact).

But none of this presents a solution - how to stop them cracking. It really is a winter thing - they don't do it in summer. I swear that the eggs are just being perverse. Maybe should put them into warm water instead? - but then the timing will be thrown out of whack. Eggs. I hate them.  Annoying little blighters  .

Mood - fairly silly and enjoying this rainy day

hhhmmm my solution to your egg dilemma ....have poached eggs instead, then you don't have to worry about the shell either and you can cook them just the way you like them - not too hard /not too soft/ just right
