Hard Boiling Eggs

January 12, 2011 Cooking Methods  One comment

Place the number of eggs to be boiled in a large enough sauce pan so that they can be submerged in water.  Fill the pan with the water (so that at least 1/2 inch of water goes over the eggs).  Add 1 tsp. of salt to the water if desired.  Put the sauce pan on a stove top burner set to high heat.  Do not cover the pan yet.  Bring the water to a boil and then cover the pan.  REMOVE the pan from the heat (keeping it covered) and let it sit for 10 mins.   While you are waiting for the eggs to cook, fill a bowl that’s big enough to contain the number of eggs you are cooking with cold water and ice cubes.  After the 10 mins. has elapsed, remove the eggs from the hot water (using a large spoon) and set them gently into the ice bath.  Let them sit in the ice bath for a couple of minutes before you peel them or store them in the fridge.
