Notes about this recipe

    Delicious flavors but ridiculous egg cooking method. Lining the cups with plastic wrap was futzy and I didn't even try tying the tops - used rubber bands instead. For the first egg I attempted to reposition the yolk as instructed and promptly broke it, so gave up after that. The eggs did not cook evenly as they tilted to one side (I'm guessing that's why you're supposed to center the yolks) and only the submerged parts cooked. It was really difficult to tell when they were done; checked after 6 minutes but the white wasn't fully cooked, but once you cut the plastic open you can't reseal it. The other egg (I just did 2) was done at 7 min. The part that did work was that the herbs stuck to the egg. I cooked the asparagus separately as it would have been tricky to fish the asparagus out with the eggs still in the pot. Added more tarragon plus some chives to the lemon butter. Note that you only need celery leaves, not the stalks.
