      Fill a medium pot with three to four quarts of water and bring to a boil.

      I had never used vinegar when making my hard boiled eggs, I have always added salt. The vinegar worked OK. I cooked 18 eggs and three of them I couldn't get the shells off of them. The others were fine. I used some of the eggs for red beets and the rest to make your egg salad. This is exactly how we like our egg salad, basic. I did add a good bit of pepper and salt. We all enjoyed this.
