every time I boil eggs, the shell sticks to them and I end up with ragged-looking hard-boiled eggs. not the prettiest for deviled eggs. There must be some trick to boiling and shelling eggs properly. Here is what I do. Please tell me what I'm doing wrong! I put eggs in a pan of cold water that covers them. I put on the lid, and bring the water to a boil. As soon as it begins boiling, I turn off the heat and let the eggs sit for 25 minutes. Then I put them in cool water and, once I can touch them without burning my fingers, I take off the shell. Am I using eggs that are too fresh? Should I put something in the water, like vinegar or salt? I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Thanks!
