Do you make hard-boiled eggs at home?
I love them, but have this weird thing with runny eggs. I tend to get nervous about not leaving the eggs in long enough when I hard-boiled them. From what I've gathered through conversations with friends, it seems like a common problem. Always ready to conquer a challenge, I decided to make a few last night (paying close attention to timing) and they cooked perfectly!
According to Martha Stewart, you:
- fill a pot with cold water (at least an inch higher than your eggs) and bring it to a boil on medium heat with the eggs inside.
- Once the water starts to boil, you remove the pot from heat and cover for 12 minutes.
- Take eggs out of the water, and rinse them with cold water.
- That's it! Eggs are ready to eat immediately.
