How long should I boil the eggs for? :)

Also, how long will hardboiled eggs keep in the fridge?

Thanks.

They are done when you can spin them on their sides.

put the eggs in the cold water and let everything heat to boil together. Once water is boiling reduce heat to simmer. Cook for 15 min (large). Extra large - 20

15 minutes from start to finish should do it.

meaning put the eggs in the water, turn the heat on, leave it alone for 15 minutes.

Jane, you being Russian, I'm surprised you don't know this ;). A lot of Russian salads use hard boiled eggs. Salat olivye comes to mind.

8 minutes from boiling water.

the cold water is a good idea too, cause it makes the shell more brittle and easier to peel off.

Oh that stuff is great! Its really fookin great.
*I* don't how to hardboil eggs because I can't cook for my life. Grandma takes care of all the nice mayo filled olivye salad making and such and then tries to feed me with it. :help:

Avoiding russian food is precisely the reason I am desperately trying to learn how to cook. :)

If you cool them quickly in cold water, that will keep the yolks nice and yellow...if they cool slowly you get that nasty greenish tinge to the yolks. It doesn't change the taste or anything, but if you're making a salad or deviled eggs, it doesn't look as nice.

I give the yolks to my dogs anyways...

cool Allie :D

lol...i need a new teacher. not only does she cook all foods with a 75% fat 25% carb ratio, she considers measuring utensils to be a work of the devil.

We don't even own a measuring cup. *sigh* I'm deprived.

No measuring cups :eek: I even have those here in my dorm, I mostly use them to make oatmeal, which by the way I'm still learning how to do, it never seems to turn out right :rolleyes:
