    1. 1
      Use a pin or needle to poke a hole in the broad end of each egg. Place each egg on a spoon or ladle and lower into a small saucepan of gently boiling water (enough water to cover eggs).
    2. 2
      Cook for 10 to 15 minutes. I think 12 minutes is perfect.
    3. 3
      To remove shell, plunge into cold running water for 1 minute.
    4. 4
      Remove the peel gently.

      This is how the great chef Jacques Pepin boils eggs (he uses a push pin to pierce the large end). After putting the eggs into the boiling water, barely bring the water back up to a gentle boil and cook for 9 more minutes. Rattle eggs to crack shells and plunge into ice cubes and water to halt the cooking process. Jacques says that he judges a restaurant on the absence of green tinge or sulfur smell, and tenderness of their boiled egg whites.
