Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs

2002-05-25

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs (or any quantity)

Directions

Step 1

Use enough cold water to cover the eggs one inch deep.

Step 2

Bring water to a rolling boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Step 3

Plunge the eggs into cold water to stop the cooking process.

Step 4

Rap the egg a couple of times on a hard surface then roll around in your hands to loosen the shell. The shell will pop right off.

Eggs a week or so old will peel easier than freshly laid eggs. This is because as the egg gets older an air pocket grows between the shell and the egg.
