One dozen reasons to eat eggs:
Hard-cooked egg tricks:
* Use eggs that have been in the refrigerator the longest; the less fresh the egg, the easier it is to peel.
* If desired, the large end of the eggs can be pricked with a pin or an egg piercer prior to cooking. This step is not essential but some cooks feel it helps prevent the eggs from cracking.
* Rapid cooling after cooking helps prevent a greenish ring from forming around the yolk.
* To hard-cook an egg quickly for Egg Salad, crack it into a poacher or microwave egg cooker and cook until the yolk is cooked. Immerse in cold water for rapid cooling, if desired; drain well.
* To determine whether an egg is hard-cooked, spin it. If it spins smoothly and rapidly, it is hard-cooked. If it wobbles and spins slowly, it is raw.
* Keep hard-cooked eggs refrigerated and use them within a week.
