How to Boil Eggs

Put your eggs into a bowl which can be sent to the table.

Pour boiling water over them and let stand eight or ten minutes.

It is essential that the water be boiling.

This way of boiling eggs, though so simple, is going out of fashion, unfortunately, as it makes a wonderful difference in the appearance of the egg when broken open, and above all, in its digestibility.

Eggs should never be boiled in any other way for invalids.
