How to hard-cook eggs
By: Herald Staff Report, Grand Forks Herald
If you boil eggs, they will be rubbery.
Use this method instead:
Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan. Fill with cold water, covering eggs by 1 inch.
Bring water just to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove pan from heat immediately. Set aside, covered, for 12 to 15 minutes — 12 for just-set yolks and tender whites, 15 for firmer results. Transfer eggs with a slotted spoon to a bowl of ice water for 5 minutes. Crack shell into tiny pieces by gently pressing egg against a hard surface. Peel eggs under cold running water, starting at the rounded end (where the air sac is).
