  3. Let the liquid cool to room temperature
  4. Strain and remove the onion skins and add the liquid back into the saucepan, gently lowering the eggs into the cool liquid- the pan should be large enough to have the eggs in one layer, do not place eggs on top of each other they will break
  5. Boil gently for 12- 15 minutes until they change colour
  6. You may find they are red enough after this stage, if they are not wait for the saucepan to cool then put the saucepan with the eggs in the fridge and leave for up to 20 minutes until the desired colour is attained
  7. Gently lift out with a spoon and let dry on a rack to let the drips fall off

  9. Serve in a large white bowl for effect and provide egg cups for consuming, serve with warm crusty bread of your choice
