    I am wondering what the 30 minute cook does to the nutrient value. Stated differently, I wonder if bringing to a boil submerged in water, timing a (1.5 minute) rolling boil, removing them from heat, sitting 10 minutes covered, and then proceeding as you do with cold water and ice, would produce a more or less nutriious egg? That is the way I do mine, and I put them damp in a Ziploc in the fridge and use over a couple of days.

    I immediately drain hot water, add cold water and fill the pot with ice. My eggs peel like a dream.
