I start with cold water to cover my eggs. Bring a boil. Cover and turn off, leaving the eggs in hot for 9 minutes 30 seconds. Cool ice/cold water. Perfect every time, they cannot overcook.

You can add a little white vinegar to the water. If shell should crack while boiling, keeps them in their shell.

Just boil the eggs for 8 minutes, take them off heat, drain water and put cold in pan with ice.. In a couple minutes you will have cooled eggs, yolks won't green on can peel ease.
