|Hate when this happens?|
1. Use old eggs. I mean it, They peel easier. If you like hard boiled eggs a lot (excellent source of protein), and you buy eggs at the store reserve 3 or 4 and store them separately. Eggs that are 2-3 weeks old are perfect!! Personally, I date my eggs before I put them in cartons.
2. Salty water takes longer to boil. If you like to boil your eggs with salty water, add the salt when the water is at a rolling boil. Same goes for pasta.. Add the salt after the water is boiling.
3. Bring the water to a boil first, then add the eggs!!
After I bring water to a boil, and add my eggs, I then turn the heat off. I leave the pot on the eye and set a timer for 15 minutes. When I'm ready, I pour the hot water out and add cold water to the pot. I crack the shells and peel them off (I save my eggshells for my girls, they will FIGHT over eggshells..)
Voila!! Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs, Every time!!
