Our foolproof method guarantees perfect eggs every time.
Carefully place 12 large eggs in a large saucepan; add cold water to cover by 1 inch, and bring to a rolling boil. Cover pan; remove from heat. Let stand 12 minutes, then drain and rinse under cool water. (To store, keep eggs, unpeeled, in the refrigerator, up to 4 days.) Peel under running water.
