On her show last week, Rachael explained how to cook hard boil eggs so they will crack easily. She said to put eggs in cold water and heat until the water comes to a boil, then turn off stove and let the eggs sit in the pan covered. I cant remember how long they were to sit and what you did after that – can you help?
Follow these steps and you will have fool proof, easy to peel hard boiled eggs every time:
1) Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water by about an inch.
2) Bring water just to a boil, then cover pan and remove from the heat.
3) Let eggs sit in covered pan of water for ten minutes, then drain and rinse in cool water until eggs are cool to the touch.
4) Peel under cold water.
