Perfect hard-boiled eggs
- Place the eggs in a small saucepan and cover with cold water.
- Set over high heat and bring to a boil.
- As soon as the water comes to a boil, turn off the heat and cover pan.
- Set timer for 12 minutes exactly.
- When the 12 minutes are up, drain water from pan and fill with cold water and let cool completely.
Note: for easy peeling, try not to use eggs that are fresh from the market or farm. Eggs that are a little older don’t cling so tightly to their shells.
