    I have finally perfected hard boiling fresh eggs. Put your eggs in a pan and fill with cold water. Add 2T of white vinegar and let it sit 30 mins. Bring the eggs to a boil and shut the heat off. Let them sit another 30 mins covered on the stove than run them under cold water. They peel like old store bought eggs.

    I steam them 35 minutes in a rice/vegetable steamer. Come out perfect hard "boiled" every time and easy to peel.
