I use US Egg Board method: Start eggs in cold water, bring to boil and simmer gently for 10 minutes, drain but reserve hot water. Immerse eggs in a cold water bath for 30 sec, back to hot water for 30 sec, then coo and chill. Most of the time this method works but not always. I always make sure my eggs are not totally fresh (buying them from a market, they are guaranteed to be many days or weeks old).
Does anyone have a better method? Please let me know.
