Hard Boiling Eggs

published by Matthew Childs on Apr 8, 2012

You never know, you may be doing it wrong.

Almost every one knows how to hard boil eggs but there are some that don’t and or just complete suck at it.

Cooking level= Easy

So here is what you will need:



stove or fire



more water



Turn on the stove or in some cases, start the fire. Put water in the pot with some salt (the salt seems to make water boil faster) and place on stove/fire, let the water sit till it boils and then gently put the eggs in so that they don’t break. Let the eggs stay in the boiling water for about 10 minutes depending on how many eggs you are hard boiling. After that take one egg out and cut it open if it is done then you are an expert and if you failed just let the other eggs cook longer. Once they are all hard boiled put water and the ice in the bowl and then gently take out each egg and put it in the ice water.

    Absolutely. Good article and this is how I do it but I don’t usually cook a dozen at once unless it is for a special reason. Good share.
