  • I've always boiled them 10 minutes. Some people let the water just start to boil and then turn it off and let them sit for 10 minutes. I find both ways work great. Apparently older eggs work better.

  • Use the following cooking times as a guide for the desired firmness for the yolk of each egg size (the whites will be firm). The timing begins once the pot of eggs is removed from the heat source.

    See chart it's a good one.

  • I boil them for 10 minutes then run cold water over them to shock them and then peel them and do whatever was planned

  • If you buy one of those egg coloring kits, it will give you the directions.
