Soft Boiled Eggs - Bantam Eggs (Miniatures)

This is basic but a useful reference for these delicious miniature eggs! I was suprised that I could not find directions on how to boil these to perfection, so I worked it out with trial-and-error. Here is the result... perfectly runny yolk, solid albumen!
