Perfectly Boiled Eggs

I appreciate a well cooked hard boiled egg. When cooked correctly the egg has a bright yellow yolk. If they are over cooked they will get a grey or green tinged yolk. Which would you rather eat?

I am going to share an easy technique that will result in perfectly boiled eggs.
Choose older eggs, as opposed to fresh. Fresh eggs are hard to peel. Older eggs peel easily. Begin by putting your eggs in a pot. (Choose a pot that has a tight fitting lid). Cover the eggs with water, then bring to a boil.
This is the difficult part: Once the water has come to a boil, turn off the heat, then place the lid on the pot. Set a timer for 15 minutes.
As soon as the timer goes off, run water over the eggs, to cool.
You will find it easier to peel the eggs under water. 
Just drain the water and toss the shells in the trash can, or compost bin. Never grind egg shells in your sink disposal. According to the plumber, the most common sink stoppages are caused by egg shells and coffee grounds.
Now you can make perfectly boiled eggs!
