At Home Pack your eggs in a tight-fitting, hard-sided container (like a mug). Pad with paper towels; you want to make sure they don’t have room to move around. Or use a specialized egg carrier, like Coghlan’s plastic 6-Egg Holder ($3; 3 oz.; coghlans.com).
In Camp In a small pot or shallow pan, bring about 2 inches of water to a boil. Add a dash of vinegar or lemon juice, which acts to quickly bind the egg and prevent it from breaking apart in the water. It’s especially important if yolks are broken.
