      REALLY GREAT "start-up" recipe for boiling eggs. I was introduced into this method: With a store-bought "PIERCER", or straight pin, POKE the big-end of the raw egg. Put egg(s) covered in room-temp H2O on high heat 'til boiling. REMOVE FROM HEAT, COVER TIGHTLY, ALLOW TO SIT IN IT'S BOILING WATER FOR ~12/15~ MINUTES, cover with running cold H2O. Peal in cool/cold H2O. YOU'LL NEVER SEE "RING AROUND THE YOKE" AGAIN. EGGS WILL PEAL VERY EASILY.
