Every Easter, when getting ready to decorate the eggs, I always forget how to properly boil them! I guess I should save the recipe, but that’s what the wonderful computer is for- I just googled it and came up with a great site with helpful tips! Here is what they say to do for the perfect hard boiled eggs for Easter:
*Place eggs in a saucepot large enough to hold them in single layer. Add cold water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Place pot over high heat and bring eggs just to boiling. Put a lid on the pot and remove it from the burner.
*Let the eggs stand in the hot water 12 minutes for medium eggs, 15 minutes for large eggs and 18 minutes for extra-large eggs.
*Drain immediately and serve eggs warm, or cool completely under cold running water or in a bowl of ice water and then refrigerate the eggs.
I did just that, and so far so good! We tasted a couple, then left the rest for decorating! As fas as egg decorating goes, the wonderful Eddie Ross is a pro! I will leave you with some gorgeous Easter decorations he made this year for Woman’s Day.
