Notes

This recipe is written for standard large eggs. Medium eggs will take about 1 minute less cook time and extra large eggs will take additional minute. 
ONLY use 1 cup of water for the 6 quart and 1 1/2 cups for the 8 quart.
  • Any more water will take longer to come to pressure, overcooking your soft boiled eggs.
