Boiling eggs??

Does anyone know how long to boil a goose egg so that it is hard boiled? I was given some of these eggs to decorate for Easter but have no idea how long I should boil them. We are not planning on eating them.

  • The older the eggs are when you boil them, the easier they are to peel, so keep that in mind. The best way to boil them so the shells come off the easiest and to keep the yolks from turning green : put the eggs in the pan with enough cold water to cover them by about an inch, leave uncovered. Bring the water to a rolling boil, then reduce the heat to keep boiling for 8-10 minutes. Put the whole pan immediately under cold running water - this is what keeps them from turning green and getting the sulfur smell. Leave them there until the whole thing is cold (takes a few minutes to get all the way to the yolk).

    If you're doing eggs not to color and it doesn't matter if the shells crack, you can move them from the pan to a bowl of ice water instead of using the running water, but there's better chance it will crack a few shells that way.

  • Forgot to add - for goose eggs, you will probably have a soft yolk. If you really aren't worried about eating them, just stick with the 10 minutes. If you think you might want to try them, add a little longer, but it will make the whites taste horrible (hard boiled goose eggs aren't actually all that appetizing)
