    I put the eggs in a pan, cover with water from the tap. Put on to boil.Once they are at a full rolling boil, I cover them and remove from heat.

    I wait 10 minutes and then drain and put ice water on them to cool.

    You will have perfect boiled eggs, no over cooked green ringed yolks.

    Easy peasy.

    I bring them to a boil slowly, and cook them for 12 minutes more after they reach simmer.
