Hard Boiled Eggs

Taken from allrecipes


  •    1 tablespoon salt
  •    1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
  •    6 cups water
  •    8 eggs


1.  Combine the salt, vinegar, and water in a large pot, and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the eggs one at a time, being careful not to crack them. Reduce the heat to a gentle boil, and cook for 14 minutes.

2.  Once the eggs have cooked, remove them from the hot water, and place into a container of ice water or cold, running water. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Store in the refrigerator up to 1 week.

*We thought we'd give this a try for our Easter eggs this year.  They turned out great!  I think the most important part of this is putting the hot eggs in ice water to cool.  They peeled like a charm (and oh what beautiful colors!)  The yolks were cooked all the way through and were a pretty yellow color (no unsightly greenish-hue).
