Kitchen Roundtable

I went to a cooking demo at Clearwater Beach public library in November.

The chef from Clear Sky did deviled eggs but first he showed us how to hard boil a dozen eggs. I remembered that Jill had posted here about learning how to boil eggs. I always overboil and have green yolks which taste okay but look yucky.

He said to boil them in salted water for 10 minutes putting the eggs in after the water boiled.

Then putting them immediately in a bowl of ice for 5 minutes.

Then let them cool in bowl.

I tried it after demo and it worked great for me. Best looking hard boiled eggs I ever cooked. Have done it several times since as I like to have the hard boiled ones on hand for various things - snacks, salads, tuna salad, like JEA.

I have never intentionally cooked a soft boiled egg. I do not like runny eggs. Or sunny side up. Or cooked so that yellow liquid runs on the plate. I make scrambled and throw in some cheese and ham or something. I did not even know people intentionally cooked soft boiled eggs. We did not have them in my kitchen growing up. Mom and Dad ate the runny morning eggs that were cooked on one side and flipped but the yellow part was still runny. I never ate those.

So I guess the hard cooked in the recipe would make sense to people. I always learn something on KRT.

Hard-cooked eggs or Boiled eggs?
I call them hard-boiled eggs, and have not used the term hard-cooked eggs. All boiled eggs
I also call them hard-boiled eggs, and there are soft-boiled also, although I've never had one. *NM*

Re: Are the eggs room temp or right out of fridge?
Thanks! But I'd be afraid they'd crack going into boiling water. *NM*
I put them in slowly and sometimes one might
Re: I put them in slowly and sometimes one might
Notice nancyo says to put the eggs in with the water (she sometimes uses hot)
