How To Make Perfect Hard Cooked Eggs.

STEP#1               Bring 1 inch of water to a rolling boil over high heat in a deep saucepan

STEP#2               Bring eggs right from the refrigerator and transfer 6 eggs into the boiling water using a steamer

                              basket or tongs or large spoon.

STEP#3               Reduce the heat to medium and put on a lid. It doesn’t matter if the eggs are above the water

                              or partially submerged.

STEP#4               Cook for 13 minutes

STEP#5               Prepare an ice bath or cold water and ice in a bowl

STEP#6               At the end of 13 minutes, transfer the eggs to the ice bath using tongs or a large spoon

STEP#7               Allow the eggs to stay in the ice bath for 15 minutes. They should be easy to peel.

NOTE-If you find that hard cooked eggs have a gray/green ring around the yolk it’s because they cooked too long. Using an ice bath stops the cooking process and cools them down quickly.
