Here we go: How to cook… HARD BOILED EGGS
First off: Choose a pot that is big enough to fit the amount of eggs you want to cook and one that has a lid.
Place the raw eggs carefully on the bottom of the pot. Make sure they don’t crack. If you use more eggs, don’t pile them higher than half way up.
Fill the pot with water to cover an inch above the eggs.
Put the pot on the stove and put on the lid. Then turn the stove on to MEDIUM (ask your parents to help you). Bring the water to a boil.
Once the water is boiling turn the stove off and keep the eggs in the water. Please keep the lid on the pot AT ALL TIMES. It makes the water boil faster and it prevents you from getting burned by hot water. Set a timer to 12 minutes for large eggs (9 minutes for medium eggs; 15 minutes for extra large eggs).
When the timer buzzes, take the pot off the stove using an oven mitt or a towel. Carry the pot to the sink and let cold water run into the pot and over the eggs. This stops the cooking process and cools the eggs.
Turn the water off and let the eggs sit in the cold water for a few minutes. Then pick them out of the water, dry them carefully and store them in the refrigerator for when you get hungry.
TIP: Here is a great way to peel a hard-boiled egg!
Take the egg and carefully crack the shell on the counter top near the sink. Then turn on the water and peel the egg under slow running water. The water will wash off the sticky shell.
A hard-boiled egg is a GREAT snack before or after you play. It gives you super-hero power.
