How To Hard Boil Eggs
Here's how to hard boil eggs. Boiling is a naturally oil-free method of cooking "nature's perfect food."
An egg contains a complete protein, healthy fats (enhanced if organic, due to the better feed given to organically raised hens), important B vitamins, and even the fat-soluble vitamins A and D that are uncommon in the American diet.
Hard-boiled eggs will keep for two to three weeks in the refrigerator. They are ideal for healthy packed lunches.
- Place eggs into a large, deep saucepan.
- Cover the eggs with cold water, with extra room.
- Bring the water to a slow boil. The boil may be a very slow bubbling; but I have not found a hard, rolling boil to cause any problems with the eggs.
- Boil for 15 to 20 minutes.
- Pour out the water from the saucepan. You may need oven mitts or pot holders.
- Run cold water into the saucepan over the eggs. This stops the cooking process.
- Remove the eggs with tongs to cool in a ceramic dish or similar container.
After peeling, hard-boiled eggs can be easily sliced with an egg slicer. Dice the egg in the egg slicer by slicing it, turning it in the slicer, and slicing again.
Diced hard-boiled eggs are a standard on salads.
