hard boiled eggs can be a giant pain in the butt if you don’t know what you’re doing. it is all to easy to over cook, under cook, or have them turn out so that the shells don’t want to come of and half the egg goes with it.
here is how to have perfect hard boiled eggs every time, easily.
boil enough water to fully cover the amount of eggs you want to boil. salt the water and add a splash of apple cider vinegar.
bring the water to a rolling boil and then turn it down enough so it is actively boiling, but won’t throw the eggs around and cause them to crack.
gently add the eggs one by one; i suggest using a ladle to transport them.
set a timer to 12 minutes.
when the timer goes off quickly transfer the eggs to an ice bath and let them cool for about 10 minutes if you have the patience.
