Making Hard Boiled eggs
 
Directions
 
1.  Put the eggs into a pot or pan.
2.  Cover with cool water (not hot) 1/2" to 1" over the top of the eggs.
3.  Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.
4.  Simmer for 12 minutes. (simmer - the water has little and few bubbles breaking the surface)
5.  After 12 minutes, drain and shock in ice bath.
6.  Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes, at this time they should be cracked then stored or peeled.
a.  If storing, crack and roll then put in a covered container and refrigerate.
b.  If peeling:
i.  Gently crack the egg on its side and roll on its waist until it does a full 360, this will crack the shell and should rupture the thin membrane between the shell and the egg.
ii.  Add the egg directly back into water and complete the same process with the remaining eggs, during this time the water will seep under the ruptured membrane allowing the egg to peel very easily.
iii.  As you peel, if you notice the membrane is not ruptured, tear it yourself and put back into the water, coming back to that one later.
iv.  As you peel, put the egg into another water bath to remove any little pieces of shell that remain. (This saves water rather than running water for each rinse).
v.  Remember shells sink so remove the eggs from the water leaving the shells behind.
