Step 1Fill a saucepan with enough water to cover the eggs by at least an inch. Place the saucepan on the stove and bring the water to a boil over high heat.
Step 2Carefully add the duck eggs to the boiling water using a slotted spoon or tongs. Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer for 5 minutes (soft), or up to 9 minutes (hard). If you want your yolks runny, make sure to place the eggs in ice cold water to stop the cooking process.
