No, this is not a joke, some people might find it very useful to know how to boil an egg. Use them for picnics or putthem in lunchboxes. It's also essential to know how to hard boil an egg for Easter so you can decorate them!
Thank You Home schooler and yes you are right somebody does need to know. I normally follow Delias cook book but while I am in Italy I don't have it so this came in really helpful so thank you!! - 04 Apr 2012
