A tip from The Mrs.: Hard Boiled Eggs
new studies show it's safer than first thought to eat a whole egg. Now I'll admit, it was pretty hard to not want to put a little dash o' salt on it as I always have but I've gotten used to it.
My eggs always had that 'beautiful' green sulfur ring around the outside of the yolk and I always envied those people who could do perfect boiled eggs. Now I'm one of 'em! How? Get a saucepan of water going to a rolling boil. Gently put your eggs in the water and set a timer for 4 minutes. When it goes off, turn off the heat and reset the timer for 20 minutes. When that timer goes off, it's time to dry them and put them in the fridge. You'll have a beautiful, perfectly cooked egg every time without that nasty green ring!
Bonus tip: Choose white eggs when hard or soft boiling eggs. For some reason brown eggs are a lot harder to peel. Weird but we've found it to be true! Enjoy!
