I’ll add a picture the next time I make them, but I have found the best way to make hard boiled eggs. First things first, put a pot of water on to boil. I have read a million instructions that stress cold water.

It doesn’t matter.

Now, wait until the water starts steaming- like, right before it boils -and THEN add the eggs. Use a spoon to ease them into the water so you don’t break them (I figured this out the hard way too many times… don’t judge me, repetition is how we learn). Now start the timer for 10 minutes. Once the 10 minutes are up, remove the pot from the heat. Set the timer for 5 minutes and walk away.

See most of the time people over cook their hard boiled eggs and it makes a disgusting looking, and tasting, greenish-gray color on the yolk. The way I do it allows for carry-over-heat to finish cooking the yolk without turning it.

When the timer goes off, put the eggs in some cold water. This helps separate the whites from the shell. Crack the shell and peel as usual.

My town is doing this funny thing now. People are painting rocks, hiding them, and finding others. It’s fun. I hear it’s spreading around the country. At any rate, it’s helping me lose weight while providing free summer fun with the kids.
