Ingredients

eggs as required

Step-By-Step

11. Place the eggs (as many as you want) in a single layer in the bottom of a lidded sauce pan.

22. Fill with water to a point 1 inch above the eggs

33. Place over high heat and bring just to a good boil.

44. Immediately remove from heat, cover, and allow to sit for precisely 16 minutes.

55. Using a slotted spoon, transfer eggs to an ice water bath to stop the cooking.

66. Peel and use.

7Note: Eggs that are a week or more old are easier to peel than fresh eggs and eggs that have spent the night in the refrigerator are easier to peel. You can also add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to the cooking water to make them easier to peel.
