Unless your an avid egg eater, hard boiled egg eater that is, you probably find yourself scratching your head when your kids want to color Easter eggs. How long do I boil? Should the water be boiling when I put the eggs in? Here is a no fail way to prepare hard boiled eggs for decorating!
- Place eggs in a large sauce pan and cover by about 1 inch with cold water. Add in 1/2 teaspoon of salt (this will assist in the peeling of the shell when they are done). Bring water to a boil. Turn off the burner as soon as water begins to boil.
- Place a cover over the pan and allow to sit for 12 minutes. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place in an ice water bath to cool.
Now its time to decorate!!
