Perfectly Hard Boiled eggs

Quick tutorial: A fellow reader asked me how to cook a perfectly hard boiled egg.

Here are two methods I like to use.  I suggest you try both of them and see which one you feel more comfortable with.

Method 1: Traditional

Fill a small pot with cold water and gently place your eggs inside. Place pot over medium-high heat uncovered.  Turn off, and remove from heat as soon as the water reaches a rapid boil. Cover the pot and let the eggs sit in the hot water for 8-10 minutes. Remove the eggs and slide them into ice water to cool. The peel should come off smoothly!

Method 2: Fast

Start with cold water and place your eggs inside. Place the pot over medium-high heat COVERED.  Let it boil for 4 minutes.  Turn off, remove from heat and let stand in the hot water for 2 minutes. Immerse them in cold water and peel immediately.

The result of both of these methods should be a powdery, fully-cooked yolk with no sign of a grey ring surrounding it.

Hope this answers your question!
Let me know which method you prefer to use!
