Five Tips for Hard-Boiled Eggs

  1. Always start the eggs in cold water.
  2. Make sure there is at least an inch of water covering the tops of your eggs.
  3. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt to keep shells from cracking.
  4. If you make a large enough batch, have a test egg to check for done-ness.
  5. Have an ice bath ready to chill eggs after they have cooked.
