*For the best color and consistency of hard boiled eggs put eggs in cold water, bring almost to a boil, turn off heat, cover eggs and let them sit in the hot water for 17 min., remove eggs from the heat, drain, and cover in cold water to stop the cooking. If you forget and your eggs start to boil only let them sit in the water for 14 min. before removing them from the heat!
