    I also put salt in the water to keep the eggs from leaking the contents if they do break. Also, starting with cold water will also help keep them from breaking. - 5/19/09

    Thanks for the tip. We have chickens and I find that peeling their fresh eggs is frustrating! The 12 minute rule has worked SO well my 8 year old can do it and wind up with a perfect boiled egg! Thank you! - 12/10/09

    I have used the following method with good results. Cover the eggs with water as above and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and set the timer for 20 minutes and remove the eggs at the end of time (it's ok to forget them) and they are perfectly hard boiled. you can then chill them. - 4/15/09

  • A classic recipe. I use low heat (simmer) for about 15 minutes, then empty the hot water, put cold water in, plus a lot of ice cubes. Let them sit in the ice water a while. Perfect hard-boiled eggs. The lower heat helps to keep the shells from cracking. - 4/14/09

  • the immediate cold does the trick. or... as soon as cooked, pour out water and keep pot under cold runing water till eggs are cooled. - 4/13/09
