how to make a perfect hard-boiled egg? Well, I don’t know about you but I sure have. It seems so simple, but questions arise like do you put the eggs in the water before or after it boils? What is the proper time the eggs should boil? How did these eggs get overcooked & how come they won’t peel easily? I came across the article how to make perfect hard-boiled eggs from Simply Recipes, and I’m ready to give some of their tips a try. One pointer I never knew is that farm fresh eggs will be difficult to peel, so let them hang out in the fridge for a few days. Also, to prevent cracking add a half teaspoon of salt to the water (this also makes the peeling process easier.) For some more advice to getting those eggs just right, and other great recipes go to Simply Recipes.
