Easiest Way to Make Hard-Boiled Eggs Every Time

file3991334492299How to perfectly boil eggs every time:

1     Put cold eggs into pot and fill with cold water just to cover.

2     Bring to boil, and set timer.  3.5 min for soft-boiled and 6.5 min for hard-boiled.  We even do both at the same time and just pull out a soft-boiled one early to eat right away, and leave rest in to finish time.

3      Drain out hot water and let sit for 1-2 min until cooler.

4      Wet hands and crack near bubble section to tear membrane.  Peel eggs by sliding thumb instead of pulling.  Fresher eggs will peel more smoothly.
