To enjoy the bright yellow-orange egg yolk instead of the normal yellow green, try cooking the eggs the waterless way. Protein begins to toughen at 170°F (75°C), and water boils at 212°F (100°C). Therefore, it is important not to boil the eggs. This recipe will teach you how to make soft-cooked and hard-cooked eggs the angelic way.
