Growing up Mom would make hard boiled eggs by putting the eggs in a pot, covering with water, placing the pot on the stove and then boil for 20 minutes. No wonder they ended up with a green ring around the yolk. Since then, all the television shows recommended you only bring the eggs to a boil and cover for 10 minutes. Who would of though the ring could be eliminated.
Peeled these eggs will keep up to a week in refrigerator. Or use in your favorite recipe. Enjoy plain or make some deviled eggs, egg salad or pickled eggs.
Place the eggs in single layer in a deep pot and cover at least one inch deep with cold water. Place on stove, bring to a boil over high heat. When the water boils, remove from the heat and cover with a lid. Allow to sit for 12 minutes. (Medium eggs about 8 minutes, extra large eggs about 15 minutes)
Drain the water and fill the pot with cold ice water and allow the eggs to chill for 10 minutes before peeling.
