DIRECTIONS

  • Cover the eggs with cold tap water in a pot and bring to a simmer over medium high heat. Do not let the eggs boil and do not cover.
  • Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes (large eggs) and remove from heat.
  • Drain water and cover the eggs with cold water, draining and refreshing cold water as it warms up. Do this for a few minutes.
  • Drain the water out of the pan and put the lid on it.
  • Gently - verrrrrry gently - shake the pan up and down until you no longer hear the hard sound of the eggs, but rather the gentler sound of the shells being cracked.
  • Remove the lid and cover the eggs with cold water again.
  • Under a slow but steady stream of cold water remove the shells. They should come off in one piece.
  • Place the eggs on a paper towel to remove moisture and then proceed with your recipe.
