How To Hard Boil An Egg

Well, everyone's gotta learn at some point, right?

I like to put hard boiled eggs in my salads. This is how I boil them. They come out perfectly hard-boiled every time. No nasty green rims around the yolk.

1. Put raw eggs into a pot and fill with cold water until all eggs are completely submerged. (About 1/2 inch of water over them).

2. Cover and boil on high. Turn off heat immediately when water starts boiling rapidly.

3. Leave the pot covered and on the stove top. Set the timer for 15 minutes and let the remaining heat do the rest of the cooking.

4. Run eggs in cold water a few times to stop the cooking.

5. When they're cool enough to handle, peel and enjoy.

(I actually prefer my eggs only half-boiled if I'm eating them by themselves. But this post is about hard-boiled eggs, so that's that.)
