The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

Hard boiling eggs is a pretty straightforward task, right? Put some eggs in a pot, add water, boil. Done. Easy! But, why then, do so many eggs turn out green? Simply put, it’s because they are over-cooked! I’ve seen the whole gamut of cooking times, and most of them yield green eggs.

Here’s the secret to perfect hard boiling –


  1. How the heck do you peel fresh eggs so cleanly? This has been such a challenge for people who eat fresh eggs. I cook mine almost the exact way you do, minus the lid on the pot. I try to peel them and the shell is so stuck to that darn egg... Grrrr....
  2. If you add a tablespoon or so of vinegar to your boiling water, the eggshells come off a whole lot easier, warm or cold.
