      Title: Hard boiled eggs
 Categories: Eggs
      Yield: 1 Servings
 
MMMMM----------------------FROM MARGE CLARK---------------------------
           Don't BOIL them...  put the
           -raw eggs in a pan of cold
           -water,
           Bring them to a boil, as
           -soon as the water starts
           -to boil, cover
           It, remove 'em from the
           -heat and let them stand in
           -the hot water
           For 20 minutes.
           As soon as the 20 mins is
           -up, drain the pan and let
           -cold water
           Run in it for several
           -minutes, until the eggs
           -are chilled.  the
           Sudden, sustained chilling
           -makes the egg shrink more
           -than the
           Shell does, thus drawing
           -away from the shell.
           When you go to peel them,
           -tap them lightly, all over.
           I used to do aprox. 3 dozen
           -for Easter...it was
           -surprising if ONE
           Of them was hard to peel.

MMMMM--------------------FROM CHRISTINE RUSS-------------------------
           Caught your post about eggs
           -and thought I would pass
           -along some
           Things I have learned about
           -boiled eggs.  One way to
           -keep from
           Overcooking them is to
           -bring them to a full boil,
           -then cover with
           A lid and turn off fire.
           -Just let them set there
           -for 10 minutes
 
  and they are cooked through with no gray around the yolk. To make
  them easy to peel just drain off all the hot water, shake them up in
  the pan to crack the shells, then rinse with cold water. The cold
  water gets through the cracks in the shell and makes the egg much
  easier to peel. Many times the shell just slips off. This method
  works about 95% of the time.
  ******************************************************* ******** From
  Bob Albert: I've experimented with boiling eggs, and this is what I
  do: Put the eggs in cold water.  Bring to a boil at high heat, then
  back the heat down to where it just barely boils. From the moment of
  the start of the boiling, time 11 minutes for medium eggs; 13 minutes
  for jumbo. Then remove from heat and dump the water. Run the eggs
  under cold water for about 30 seconds and peel.
  ******************************************************* ******** From
  Sue Matthews: I put the eggs into cold water, cover the pan with a
  lid, and crank up the heat.  When the water is at a turbulant boil, I
  turn off the heat and let the pan sit about 10 minutes, then flood
  the pan with cold water to cool the eggs (this rapid cooling prevents
  the ugly grey lines around the outside of the yolk). Cracking is a
  snap.... cover the pan and start shaking it back and forth... the
  eggs roll into each other and gently crack the shells... many will
  fall off right in the pan. Run the others under some cold water and
  the rest of the shells will fall off as well.
  ******************************************************* ******** From
  Melissa Mckenzie: My grandmother taught me an almost foolproof way to
  hard boil eggs.  She always uses eggs that are a few days old, never
  fresh from the store that day (those tend to crack real easy). Then
  she would take a thumb tack (one kept especialy for this purpose) and
  carefully punch a small hole in the large end of the egg. She would
  then put the eggs in the bottom of a pot just large enough so that
  the eggs were touching each other and add cold water to just cover
  the eggs. By the way she does salt the water.  You know the pour some
  in your palm until it looks right then dump it into the pot measuring
  method. She would then put the pot on the stove, bring the water to a
  boil, then put the cover on and turn the burner off. After about
  twenty minutes, she would run the eggs under cold water, crack the
  shell and peel.
  ******************************************************* ******** From
  Gigi Mcgrath: Run cold water over the hard-boiled eggs to cool, and
  then throw in a tray of ice cubes. Wait until they melt, then peel.
  I've never had any trouble.
