How to boil eggs
Another problem is when the egg shell doesn’t loosen from the cooked egg and chunks of the white stick to the shell leaving a gnarled mess. Very fresh eggs will be much more difficult to peel than older one. So it helps to plan ahead when you know you will be hard boiling them. Super fresh eggs are going to be hard to peel so it’s best NOT to hard-boil eggs the same day they are purchased. The best eggs for boiling are at least a week to ten days old.
- Place eggs into a pan in a single layer, without stacking.
- Fill pan with cold tap water, covering the eggs with at least 1-inch of water.
- Heat over medium-high heat just until boiling.
- Reduce heat and continue cooking gently for just another minute.
- Turn off the heat; cover and allow to sit for 25 minutes.
- Pour off the hot water and run cold water on the eggs while still in the pot. Allow the eggs to cool, changing the water a few times.
- Remove the eggs from the water; crack and peel under cold running water.
