I have been to many sites trying to find the perfect hard cooked egg. I needed one that didn’t leave the egg rubbery, chewy, smelly and with that nasty green yolk. This is the perfect way to hard cook eggs and I will use it every time.
Ancient Chinese Secret:
Bring small amount of water to a boil, reduce heat and insert steamer basket.
Place a minimum of 4 eggs in basket. The eggs don’t need to be room temp or amazingly fresh from the hen. I find that eggs at least a week old, peel easier.
Cover pan and set timer for 12 minutes.
When done, submerge eggs for at least 5 minutes in an ice water bath.
Crack, chomp, apply beet relish and repeat!
I did not color my Easter Eggs today in honor of Earth Day.
