Place your eggs in the bottom of a large pot and sprinkle with 1 tsp salt and 2 tbsp vinegar.Bring a kettle full of water to boiling,
Place the pot on a heated stove element and pour the boiling water over the top. Stir the eggs gently while bringing the water to a boil again. This helps the yolk stay in the center and it works like a charm! No more yolks settling to one side!
Bring to a boil. See cooking times for different sized eggs below.Remove from the heat and run cold water into the pot. Once the pot has cooled, removed the water.
Swirl the eggs around the pot hard enough to crack their shells in several places.Fill with cold water again and leave for 5-10 minutes.
Remove the shells (the water should have started to seep underneath the cracked shells and they should come off really easily.)If the eggs are still stubborn, peel under running water.Refrigerate until used.
Boiling Times for a slightly soft center :Small eggs - 7 minutes Medium eggs - 8-9 minutes, large eggs - 10 minutes extra large eggs - 12 minutes. Add 2-3 minutes per time for harder centered eggs.
