How to make Hard Boiled Eggs

  • For perfect hard boiled eggs, always use at least 10 days old eggs from the day you purchase the eggs, so that they are easier to peel and would not stick to the shells.
  • Turn the eggs upside down the day before you cook the eggs in the eggs carton, to center the egg yolks.
  • Cooking the eggs in hot water and not boiling water will help eliminate the green rings around the egg yolk. Often called hard cooked eggs rather than hard boiled eggs.
  • The added salt in the water will not change the taste of the eggs, but will help loosen the egg membranes from the egg shells for easier peeling.
  • Cooling the eggs after cooking and before peeling will also help make the peeling process easier as the eggs will contract slightly from the shells.
  • Always use a sharp, thin and smooth edged knife to cut the eggs. Alternatively, unflavoured dental floss can be used as well. I prefer the knife as its harder to cut straight with a dental floss.
