Here is an idiot proof way to do perfect hard
boiled eggs every time.
Things You Will Need
Water, a pot, eggs, salt, baking soda (optional)
Fill a pot with enough cold water to cover the
eggs. Cold water keeps the eggs from over cooking.
Place the eggs into the pot, being cautious not
to drop or crack them.
Add enough salt to make the water salty.This strengthens the membrane of the eggs by raising
the pH, in turn making the eggs easier to peel.ÃƒÂ‚ You can also do this by adding half
teaspoon of baking soda per quart of water.
Put the lid on, light the flame and bring the water to a
boil. Once the water starts boiling, turn off the flame and
let the eggs sit in the hot water for 10-15 minutes.The heat from the pot and water is enough to continue cooking the
eggs so they are not runny.
Remove the eggs from the pot and run cold water over them
for a few seconds before peeling and serving.You may also be interested in this neat video that show how to blow out an egg. Hint, it involves using baking soda.
Tips & Warnings
To make the eggs easier to peel, use older eggs
or add baking soda or salt to the water before boiling.
