Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Hard Boiled Eggs
Originally uploaded by Simply Frugal
Ever wondered why you get that black stuff on your hardboiled eggs?

It comes from overcooking them.

Start the eggs in cold water, bring them to a boil, and time them carefully. After exactly 10 minutes, run cold water over them to stop the cooking process.

Same cooking times, but the egg on the left was cooled quickly in cold water. The egg on the right was allowed to cool by sitting on the counter at room temperature.
