Hard Boiled Eggs

eggsEveryone and their brother has a different technique for making hard boiled eggs easier to peel.  I’ve tried them all, and I tend to think it’s just the luck of the draw. Some shells peel like a dream, some shells stick like your worst nightmare. Whatevs. They taste great no matter how they look.

Keep a bunch of these in your refrigerator for snacking, meal time, and a variety of recipes.

Instructions
  1. Gently place eggs in the bottom of a large pot. Fill with cold water to cover the eggs by one inch. Make sure the water level is at least several inches below the top of the pot so nothing will bubble over when it begins boiling!
  2. Place the pot on the stove on high heat. When the water begins to bubble, start timing and boil the eggs for exactly one minute.
  3. Turn the burner OFF and place a lid on on the pot. Let the eggs set in the hot water for twelve minutes. *If you are using very large eggs, increase the time to 15 minutes. *If you live at high altitude, increase the time to 18 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, place a large bowl in the sink and fill with cold water. When the wait time is up, use a spoon to move the eggs to the cold water batch. Cool for 3-5 minutes before peeling.
  5. Keep them in sealed container in your refrigerator and use within one week.
