Passover means eggs- lots of eggs. And in that pyramid of eggs, there are a whole lot of hard boiled eggs. Yet, it seems that far too many people do not know how to make the perfect hard cooked egg.
So, the Kosher Nexus blog (via Southern Living magazine) rides to the rescue. Here is our guide to perfect hard cooked eggs:
Put the eggs in a pot (duh) in a single layer. Cover with three inches of water. Bring the water to a rolling boil.
When the water boils, remove the pot from the burner, cover the pot and let it sit for 12 minutes. Not eleven, not ten, not fourteen: 12 minutes.
After 12 minutes, drain the pot. Then fill the pot with very cold water and let the eggs stand for a few minutes in the cold water.
Crack the eggs on a hard surface and peel under cold, running water.
Voila! Perfect hard cooked eggs.
