Place the eggs in a pot filled with cold water over medium heat.
Carefully watch the temperature of the water with a thermometer—it should reach at least 140 degrees Fahrenheit and no higher than 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Maintain this temperature by lowering the heat.
Let the eggs sit in the pot at this temperature for 3 to 5 more minutes before removing them.
