LOL I will try it again tomorrow morning for breakfast, for a little less time. I want it to taste like the soft boiled eggs my mother made for me as a child.
Did you have the cup on that rack that "didn't" come with your electric pressure cooker? Running as fast as my short little legs will go!

You can't run at all, Addie, you have a broken foot! Carol will easily catch you!

Actually, no, because when my DH was packing up the PC to take it back to the basement storage area I told him "Don't forget the rack! It's over on the counter by the telephone." So now the rack is in the box with the PC. If I am ever looking for it, someone remind me where it is, please. LOL

turned out fine too. The white sort of wrapped all the way around the yolk, and the yolk was nice and runny.

Not a picture, but hey, I tried!
Cute.

Thank you. I knew I could always count on you to come to my rescue.

Right now I am so full of Vicodin I probably could run and not even notice my foot. I only take one at a time and then two hours later I take the second one. That way the benefits last longer and I don't have to take as many. I also find that should I let the Vicodin wear off without taking any more, once the pain is gone, it doesn't come back when the pill wears off.

Addie, I have one Percocet left from my last surgery. I'm saving it for a very special occasion, because I know once that's gone there's no more. There have been several times that I've had pain and I look at that one pill, then put it back thinking, "No, I might have a worse day." LOL

I tried another egg this morning. Let it go for 1:10. The yolk was still a little too well done, but there was some white that was not done. That doesn't work for me. The white has to be cooked. I will try again tomorrow. I think it was Jonesfolk who heated the water first, then added the egg and heated it again. I will try that, because I was always told for a hard boiled egg, always start them in cold water because if you use hot water, the white will start to cook before the yolk and the yolk will not be done enough. In this case, that's the result I want. If that doesn't work I will probably just have to concede that this process is not for me.

Carol, I had the same result when I tried it yesterday. I think warming the water first is a good idea; I'm going to try that, too.
