Best way to make hard-boiled eggs: Place eggs gently in a deep pot of cold water. Over high heat, bring to a full rolling boil. Remove pot from heat and set a timer for 10 minutes for firm yolks. Prepare a large bowl of ice and water. When the timer goes off, immediately put the eggs into the ice water to cool. (Quick cooling prevents green ring around the yolks.) When eggs are completely cool, refrigerate or peel. To peel, crack on a flat surface and roll the egg on it, remove shell, rinse.
