How to Hard Boil Eggs

Today, I noticed a rising trend of people searching on Google how to hard boil eggs.

Since Easter Sunday is fast approaching, it must be that people are already preparing for the kid’s Easter egg hunt.

In hard boiling an egg, the number one concern is time: for how long will you boil it in water?

To help you, here’s  a cooking method recommended by the American Egg Board:

1. Place eggs in a saucepot large enough to hold them in single layer. Add cold water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Place pot over high heat and bring eggs just to boiling. Put a lid on the pot and remove it from the burner.

2. Let the eggs stand in the hot water 12 minutes for medium eggs, 15 minutes for large eggs and 18 minutes for extra-large eggs.

3. Drain immediately and serve eggs warm, or cool completely under cold running water or in a bowl of ice water and then refrigerate the eggs.

It’s that simple.

You can now paint and decorate those eggs with different colors and let the Easter egg hunt begin.

    We have a pot here where you can just place a wet paper towel on the pot and place eggs over it.
    After couple minutes, pour cold water into the pot.

    There you go.
