How to tell if an egg is fresh!
You can easily guage eggs' freshness by gently placing them in a bowl of cold water. Really fresh eggs will droop to the bottom of the bowl and lie on their sides. somewhat fresh eggs will stand on the end and bob aout in th ewater. Old eggs will float-and should be discarded
Hard-Cook Eggs Step 1
PLACE eggs in saucepan large enough to hold them in single layer. ADD cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch. HEAT over high heat just to boiling.
REMOVE from burner. COVER pan. LET EGGS STAND in hot water about 15 minutes for large eggs (12 minutes for medium eggs; 18 minutes for extra large).
DRAIN immediately and serve warm. OR, cool completely under cold running water or in bowl of ice water, then REFRIGERATE.
