The Secret to Perfectly Peelable Eggs!!!

Easter is coming up and the eggs will be popular once again! How do you get eggs that peel and look like this you ask? 

I had the same question so I Googled like mad and tried the technique that sounded most plausible to me.

And it worked!

The secret: 

Fill your pot up with cold eggs.

Turn you tap on as hot as you can and fill it up. 

Put the pot on the stove and turn it up to High. 

Set the timer for 10 minutes. This should be enough for it to gradually heat to a rolling boil for a few minutes. 

When the timer goes off turn the heat off. 

Let your eggs sit in the pot on the same burner for another 10 minutes. 

As soon as your 10 minutes is up run the under cold water until your eggs are cold. 

Peel with ease and enjoy the most beautiful eggs ever!

*This technique works like a charm at my altitude, my tap water and with my stove. You may have to tweak it for your situation.*
