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.
