I don't know about you guys but not much frustrates me as much as boiling an egg only for it to be dry, chalky and come apart when you peel it.

Well here is how you should do it from now on with a few tips and reason behind them.

1.  Use old eggs.  Fresh eggs are more acidic and thus the attachment between the egg and the shell gets weaker the more basic it becomes.  This can also be increased by adding baking soda to the water.

2.  Also, the air cell, found at the large end of the shell between the shell membranes, increases in size the longer the raw egg is stored.  As the contents of the egg contracts and the air cell enlarges, the shell becomes easier to peel.

3. Use a sewing needle to poke pinholes in the shell before boiling.  This helps separate the egg from the shell and equalizes pressure so the shell doesn't crack during cooking.

4. Start the eggs in cold water and bring them up to temperature WITH the water.  This prevents the inside of the egg from boiling and overcooking.  Putting the eggs in an ice bath afterwards will also prevent overcooking.

So here's what you do.

Poke pinholes in the bottom of the egg with a sewing needle.

Put eggs in a pot and cover with water so there is at least 1" water covering eggs.  Add some baking soda to the water.  I just eyeball it but a couple tbsp is fine depending on how many eggs and how much water.

Turn burner on high.  When water starts to boil set a time for 60 seconds.  

When the timer goes off, turn the stove off, cover the put and set a time for 10 minutes.

When that timer goes off, drain the eggs and pour into a bowl with ice water.  Set a timer for 5 minutes.  

When this timer goes off pull the eggs out and peel them.

A properly hard-boiled egg should not have a ugly, grey, sulfur ring around the yolk, should still be creamy, not dry and chalky, and should not stink.

Hard-boiled eggs are one of my favorite bodybuilding snacks, they are easy on the go, relatively inexpensive, and if you're using pastured eggs they are arguably one of the healthiest things you could eat.

Cheers.

I'll try this method the next time I make me some eggs!
