  3. Get a bowl of ice water ready. You will need it at the end.
  4. Put your eggs on a trivet or steamer. You may stack the eggs, but make sure they don't touch the side of the pot or they will crack and some of the cooked egg will seep out.

If you do not want the ugly grey boundary on the yolk, just put the eggs into boiling water with tongs, bring the water back up to a rolling boil, turn off the burner or move the pot off the fire, and put a lid on it. Let it steep for 5-6 minutes. Pour cold water into the pot and shake the pot vigorously to crack the shells a bit. As the eggs are cooling rapidly, they will pull some water under the shells and will be really easy to peel.


Have FUN!
