The hard boiled egg is both a symbol of Easter and of Passover. Symbolizing the cycle of life and springtime renewal, we should all make room on the table for eggs. No matter which holiday you celebrate, you probably could use some tips on making perfect hard boiled eggs.
1. Place the eggs in a single layer at the bottom of a saucepan. Cover with at least an inch or two of cold water.
2. Heat the pot on high heat and bring the water to a full rolling boil.
3. Turn off the heat, keep the pan on the hot burner, cover, and let sit for 10-12 minutes.
4. Strain the water from the pan and run cold water over the eggs to cool them quickly and stop them from cooking further.
