Did you know? If you don’t overcook your eggs – they won’t smell
Hard-boiling eggs can turn into an epic fail, if you don’t do it right. Slightly overcooked is okay, albeit a bit smelly; slightly undercooked is alright too, we just call it soft boiled, and dip toast strips into the yolks. However, really overcooking them can be a huge exceptionally smelly mess! And really undercooking them could end up in a waste of perfectly good food. So why settle for less than perfect, when in this case, perfection is so easily attainable.
So how do you do make perfect hard boiled eggs ?
1- Put the number of eggs you are cooking into a pot, that has a lid.
2- Cover the eggs with water
3- Put the pot with eggs and water on the stove element and bring to a boil.
4- Once the water has started to boil, cover with the lid – turn off the heat,
Here is the trick:
5- Set a timer! Use your watch, microwave, telephone, stove, oven, whatever! But pay attention – you do not want the eggs to sit in that water for any longer than 20 minutes. That is the trick. 20 minutes.
6- When the time is up, run the pot under cold water, to stop the cooking process.
Now, you can store the eggs in the fridge (keep them separate from the fresh eggs so as not to be really disappointed in the case of a mishap….) or you can peel them and use them straight away.
