Let's learn the best way to get no-fail, easy-peel hard-boiled eggs.

How To Boil An Egg

Carefully place large eggs in a single layer in a pot of cold water.

Bring the pot to a rolling boil then take it off the heat. Cover and let stand on the burner for 12 to 15 minutes.

Drain the hot water from the pan and fill with cool water and some ice.

Start by tapping the egg gently on the counter. Roll the egg on all sides. Gently peel the shell off. 

When you have farm-fresh eggs, they can be a difficult to peel. To make it easier to peel fresh eggs refrigerate them a week to 10 days in advance

Hard-boiled eggs are easiest to peel right after cooking. Cooling causes the egg to contract slightly in its shell.
