Hard to believe Easter is right around the corner. With that in mind I have a fool proof method for boiling eggs so your yolks come out perfectly yellow. I hate cutting into a hard boiled egg only to find a green ring around my yolk. I’m a yolk kinda gal so it’s very important to me…hahaha.
I have heard and seen all sorts of methods from throwing a penny in the water, adding a ton of salt, add some vinegar, and the list goes on and on. Truthfully, none of those have ever worked for me. I have found that fresh eggs present the biggest problem. Dont you just hate when you peel an egg only to lose all the white? They look horrible and the only thing you can do with them is add them to salads, or, hide them and eat them when nobody is looking.
I place my not so fresh eggs in a pan big enough to accomodate them without them laying on top of one another. Then add cold water to cover. On high heat, bring the water to a rolling boil. When that happens, immediately remove them from the heat, and cover with a lid. Set the timer for 30 minutes. When the timer goes off, place them in a water and ice bath. The object here is to stop the cooking process. Your yolks will be perfectly yellow.
So, when Peter Cottontail rolls around, you will have eggs worthy of any Easter basket. Our family loves them Easter morning with toasted Easter Bread. Bet ya can’t guess what the next post is!!!
Til next time,
