• Perfect Boiled Eggs

    I found this method after buying a dozen of 'Great Day' Farmers Market at Walmart.  Inside the top of the carton were instructions on "How To Hard Cook An Egg". 

     I tried it and loved it and am now sharing the secret with you.

    1. Place the eggs into a saucepan. (I punch holes in the most round end of the egg.)  

    Fill with cold water (be sure the water covers the eggs by about two inches.)

    2. Bring the water to full boil.  Once it's boiling, put a lid on the saucepan and remove it from the burner.  Let the eggs stand for 12 minutes still covered by the lid.

    Note: I found that the more eggs I cooked the longer I had to let it stand. The first time I only had two eggs. Today I did six and found that the center was a little too soft.  If fact, next time I will let them boil another minute or two and then let them set for 14 minutes.

    3.  Place the eggs under cold running water until they are completely cooled.  Softly tap egg on a hard surface to crack the shell. (I start from end with puncture in it.) Continue peeling until the eggshell is completely gone.

    Additional Tips from Great Day:

    Refrigerate your hard-boiled eggs
    if they are not being eaten right
    away (hard boiled eggs still in the
    shell can be stored for one week).
    I mark ends with 'HB' and date!

    If your hard-boiled eggs are tough to peel, gently roll them in your hands to crack the entire shell.
