Hard Boil Eggs

Believe it or not there is a technique to making hard boiled eggs. First of all you should never boil the eggs so the name is a misnomer. It will make them rubby and get that gray tint. I suggest using older eggs because they peel better. Some people use a needle to punch a hole in the shell but I have never tried it myself.

These eggs are from my Free Range Chickens so the yolks are darker in color.

So, How Do You Do It:

Place eggs in single layer in saucepan.

now cover with at least one inch of water over tops of shells.

Cover pot with lid and bring to a boil.

As soon as it begins to boil, remove from heat and let stand.

Let the eggs stand in hot water 15 to 17 minutes.

When cooked to desired level, drain off hot water.

Immediately cover with cold water and add a few ice cubes.

Hard-cooked eggs: let stand in cold water until completely cooled. Use as needed.
