Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs (Easy to Peel)

One of the most basic cooking skills everyone should know is how to make hard boiled eggs. Though it is a common skill, it can be difficult to cook perfect hard boiled eggs without the dreaded green ring around the egg yolk.

This is by far the easiest and most fool-proof way to cook perfect hard boiled eggs; a handy skill to have whether you are just learning to cook or a pro in the kitchen.

5 Eggs
A tray of ice cubes

1. Place eggs in a small pot. Fill with enough water to cover the eggs by an inch. Bring to a boil uncovered over high heat.

2. Once it reaches a boil, remove the pot from heat and cover with a lid. Set a timer for 15 minutes.

3. After 15 minutes is up, place the eggs in a bowl of cold water filled with ice cubes. Let the eggs sit in the cold water for 5 minutes.

4. Add one egg and a little bit of water to a cup. Cover the cup with one hand and tilt the cup on its side, and shake the cup in an up and down motion (highly recommended doing this over a sink). Shake for 10 to 15 seconds.

5. Take the egg out of the cup and peel. Repeat with the remaining eggs.
