What is the approximate cook time for 3/4 boiled eggs and are there secrets to getting them out of their shells?
At my elevation, I find 8 minutes is needed. Just a data point for us high elevation types. I'm about 5000 ft. Crack the shell lightly when you shock them usually helps with peeling.Large eggs six minutes at full rolling boil (use plenty of water to hold the boil when eggs go in) will leave the yokes all liquid if you dunk immediately in ice water, so i'd say adjust what you do from around that area to get your desired effect.
