Tips on boiling eggs

Here are some tips on boiling eggs.

  1. Use old eggs
    • Eggs that are older, about 5 days old.
    • They will peel easier than fresh eggs, because some of the water has evaporated.
  2. Let the eggs warm to room temperature (15-20 minutes)
    • This helps prevent cracking
  3. Put eggs in a single layer in the pan
    • This will help the eggs from bouncing around and cracking the shells
  4. use cool water
    • This will help the eggs from cracking, by slowly raising the temperature of the egg shells
  5. cover the eggs with at least 1 inch of water
  6. Add a little salt to the water
    • This will draw out some of the water from the egg, through osmosis, making them easier to peel
  7. Once the eggs start to boil, turn the burner to low and simmer for 1 minute.
  8. After 1 minute turn the brunner off, remove the pan from the head and let the eggs for at least 10 minutes
