Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs
These eggs will be perfectly cooked, with very tender whites and the yolk just cooked through. Make them into Devilishly Deviled Eggs for a quick-to-disappear appetizer.
- Poke a pin hole in the large end of the egg (to let the bubble of air escape and avoid a flat spot on your egg)
- Put the eggs in a pan and cover with water. Bring to a vigorous boil then remove the pan from the heat and cover with a lid. After they sit for 12 minutes, drain the water and crack the eggs (roll them around in the pan to crack shells or tap them lightly with the back of a spoon). Cracking the eggs allows the sulfur to escape. The sulfur causes the green yolks and the unpleasant odor. Cover the eggs with ice cold water for about 30 minutes.
- Always start at the large end first for easy peeling
- Very fresh eggs are harder to peel than older ones.
