Get some eggs, put them in a pot of cold water. Bring to a boil, once boiling turn down the heat to low. If you want the eggs to remain semi-liquid throughout, cook on low heat for 2-3 minutes. If you want the eggs to be soft boiled, cook on low heat for 3-5 minutes. If you want the eggs to have firm outer shell and semi-liquid yolk, cook on low heat for 5-6 minutes. If you want the eggs to be hard boiled, cook on low heat for 10-15 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and set it in the sink. Immediately start pouring cold water into the pan, until all the hot water is replaced and the eggs are immersed in cold water. This prevents the eggs from continuing to cook and generally keeps the yolk from turning green. Refrigerate your hard boiled eggs until you are ready to serve them or use them in a recipe.
The best way to peel hard boilded eggs is by gently rolling them on a hard surface to crack the shell, then peeling it off.
