Easter eggs.

  1. I know we went through this last year but we are having an argument (a friendly one) about how to make the perfect hard boiled egg.
    I'd appreciate the fool-proof method.

    I asked about boiling eggs for my salad awhile back. Here's the thread:

    Mine is not foul proof.. This after noon we colored eggs. I put them in a pot, about 2 dozen.. Then I said "how long ya cook 'em" kids say, "we dunno"... so we just let them boil awhile.. I figured when most of them started to crack, well, maybe they were done... (Humm....) You'd think that after all the years we bioled eggs for Easter I would remember something sooo simple. But, No.. I only cook boiled eggs once a year, and can never rememer how.. Suppose this is how they came up with VERY VERY hard boiled eggs??
    HAPPY EASTER!!!
