Perfect hard boiled eggs

Video shows how to do it and gives examples of eggs cooked at different times. Not all of us have ice in that case a little experimentation with how long they're allowed to sit before being taken out will be required.https://youtu.be/FTha4zARGN4

Re: Perfect hard boiled eggs

without ice--i place into cold water--(or as cold as i have on boat) in a pan. medium heat on stove--
cook 15 min. turn off heat. empty water. let sit in pan until manageable. then put into fridge once the eggs donot heat fridge. peel em when cold.
good luck. this works for me in tropics

Re: Perfect hard boiled eggs

It depends on where you are. In Minnesota we had to defrost the chickens to get the eggs out and then defrost the eggs before cooking them. In Phoenix the eggs came out of the chicken hard boiled. In Southern California we are all vegans and don't eat eggs. ✌️

Re: Perfect hard boiled eggs

I found that the proper time differs considerably from Svalbard to Bora Bora. But they all are perfectly boiled past say 15 minutes nomatterwhat.

Now, the soft yolk version, give this one a try ...

;-)

Thanks for sharing!

Re: Perfect hard boiled eggs

This makes it easy. Put it in the water same time as the eggs. It gets darker, showing the doneness of the eggs. It is pretty accurate and we have been using this one for quite a few years now

So when it hits the desired cookness do you have to put them on ice or can you just let them air cool?

Re: Perfect hard boiled eggs

We use tap water, but live on land for now so unlimited supply.
You are really just removing the heat by transferring it to the water. Ice cold water will take more heat, or larger volume of warmer water.
In theory you could use a large pail of sea water, might want to rinse with fresh before peeling though;-)

I've used this method for years, except using cold tap water instead of ice, and it has worked well. Energy is saved by turning off heat once water starts to boil, then letting it sit for the desired length of time. For me, about 15 minutes. After cooling in cold water to stop the cooking process and help separate the shell, the results are well cooked eggs with easily removable shells.

Re: Perfect hard boiled eggs

I boil my eggs sous vide.

Takes longer, but you don't need to watch them.

Sous vide hard boiled eggs take 1 hour at 1100 watts. Very boat battery friendly.

Re: Perfect hard boiled eggs

My recipe for perfect hard boiled eggs: put eggs in pan at room temp, add 1 teaspoon baking soda, put on heat until boiling, cook 5 minutes at boiling, turn off the heat after 5 minutes allow to cool until easy to handle.
The baking soda makes the eggs easy to peel. You don't need to hold a boiling temp for 10 minutes because the pan will retain enough heat to keep cooking the eggs after you turn the stove off.
New eggs, very fresh eggs are more difficult to peel than older eggs.
Regarding the bakING soda, I have no idea how it makes eggs easier to peel, but it does!

Ps: my recipe will yield eggs that have yellow yolks, no grey green ring! The Grey green ring is actually sulfur and indicates an egg cooked too long. Remember : if you can bounce it, if it smells, your doing it wrong!

Re: Perfect hard boiled eggs

What are you people smokin'? 15 minutes for hard-boiled eggs? I can cook Extra-Large at 6 minutes, and that's WITH cooling them in ice water. Yep. Hard-boiled. But the egg is not nasty and grey and dry.
