It's quite embarrassing that I can't do this. I can make cakes from scratch. I love baking homemade croissants and making my own puff pastry for danishes. I can Create an 8-course Thanksgiving Dinner for 20 people and have everything get done cooking at the same time (that one took a LOT of practice!) So, why can't I make a hard-boiled egg?!
|Last Year's Egg Hunt (Yeah, it was warm out!)|
Now, every year, I host a little Egg Hunt and games for the kids in the neighborhood. It's nothing formal - just something fun to do to welcome spring. I would love to use real eggs this year. I can't figure out WHERE my husband stored our plastic eggs, OK? I refuse to buy more, so we are going to need to do this with real eggs. Plus, I want to try out some natural egg-dying methods. I've been saving up my yellow onion skins for a couple of months, and I froze some of the beets from last year's garden just for the occasion! The thing is, I don't want to send all of these kids home with eggs that haven't been cooked correctly.
So, I need your help - PLEASE! How do I boil an egg so it peels easily and the yolk is cooked all the way?
