How to make the perfect hard-boiled eggs
Sure sure it is easy. You just need a pot, water, and eggs, turn the heat on and voila, boiled egg! But, DO YOU KNOW how to make the perfect hard- boiled egg without getting the shells cracked. Or are you the type who doesn’t know when to take the eggs out and you just hope they are done? And most of all- do you know how to avoid those dark rings around the yolk? Hmm, nasty.
Some recipes depend on good boiled eggs such as egg salads or deviled eggs. Of course, that is if you are like me who look at that.Seriously, I do because that is just who I am. Even Easter eggs for coloring and decorating depends on a good, if not perfect, hard-boiled eggs, right?
So,first, place the eggs in the bottom of a sauce pan. Add cold water. Make sure the top of the eggs are covered by at least an inch of water. Over medium heat cook without the lid.Once you see the water is boiling, and you see big bubbles, turn the heat off and put the lid on. Let it sit for 12 minutes.Scoop with a slotted spoon. You may run the eggs in cold water for easy peeling or just sit the eggs on a plate to cool a little bit before you peel them. How easy is that?
Enjoy your perfect boiled egg!
For soft-boiled egg? – let it sit in the hot water for 5 minutes (for runny), 7-8 minutes (for barely set).
