The Basics: Hard Boiled Eggs

Hard Boiled Eggs

Baking Soda
Eggs (best if the eggs have been in your fridge for about a week)

1. Pour enough cool water into a large pot to cover your eggs. Mix in baking soda (I used about 1/2 a Tbsp. for 10 eggs) & then place the eggs into the pot in a single layer. Bring to a boil (be watchful that the baking soda water doesn't foam out of the pot!) & then turn off the heat & put the pot's lid on. Let sit, covered, for about 12-13 minutes.
2. Run cold water over the eggs while they're still in the pot until the eggs have cooled considerably. Taking one egg at a time, tap one end on the counter & then proceed to gently roll the egg on the counter so that the shell cracks all over (make sure not to apply so much pressure that the white splits). Next, making sure to break the thin membrane underneath, peel off the shell. More often then not it will come off in long/large sections.
