  1. Gently put the eggs in the pot and add enough water to cover the eggs by about 1 inch.
  2. Put the pan on the stove, turn the heat to medium-high, and bring the water to a full boil (you’ll know the water is boiling when you see bubbles breaking all over the surface).
  3. As soon as the water boils, turn off the heat, cover the pan, and let it sit for 10 minutes.
  4. Fill a bowl with cold water and some ice cubes.
  5. After 10 minutes, using a large slotted spoon, move the hot eggs to the bowl of ice water and let them cool for 5 minutes.
  6. Drain the eggs (hold them against the bowl with your hand while you pour out the water), then shake the bowl back and forth so that the eggs roll around, bump into each other hard, and the shells crack all over. The cracked shells should be easy to peel off with your fingers. Refrigerate peeled eggs in a sealed container if not eating immediately.
