How To Boil Eggs

Learning to boil eggs properly is how you will avoid many common undesirable aspects of the process. The key to a perfectly smooth, peeled egg is separating the membrane from the egg so they should be peeled while they are still warm & under cool water. Once you get in between the egg white surface & the membrane, the shell should be removed in large pieces. Green rings appear on overcooked eggs. This cooking method will ensure the yolks do not have green rings around them. Once the task is complete, many recipes may be prepared using them from deviled eggs & salads to adding them as component to classics including egg salad, chicken salad & potato salad. Learn how to boil eggs in your very own kitchen.
