While this might make me sound duller than dirt, a group of my friends recently discussed how we cook hard-boiled eggs. No kidding. In the past I've managed cracked eggs, or eggs with that unsightly green ring around the yolk. Or worst of all, eggs that cling to the peel so they end up looking like a mangled mess. Today I thought I'd share the easy-peasy way to boil eggs -- that peel perfectly!
|Bring to boil|
2. Bring them to a boil. Don't walk away and let them keep boiling or boil too vigorously. It's not necessary and may result in cracked eggs.
|Cover and let stand 20 minutes.|
4. After 20 minutes, pour off the hot water and cover them with cold tap water.
|SHOCK your eggs!|
That's it. How easy is that? Perfect eggs every time. Please note that I used brown eggs in the pictures, but you must use white eggs if you're going to color them.
|The peels come off cleanly!|
If you're feeling more adventurous, hop on over to my blog on Homemade Cadbury-Style Chocolate Eggs (http://www.mysteryloverskitchen.com/2011/04/cadbury-creme-style-chocolate-easter.html ). My tasters thought they tasted just like the real thing.
|Happy Easter to all!|
Now, can someone please tell me why blues and purples always look funky and don't dye evenly?
