  • 1 dozen organic eggs
  • water


  • In a medium large pot, add an inch of water to the bottom of the pan and bring to a rolling boil over high heat.
  • Place your steamer basket or steaming rack in and carefully place eggs onto the steamer basket with a slotted spoon in a single layer if possible. I found that if you load on alternating sides, it keeps it from tipping over into the boiling water.
  • Cover with a lid and steam for 12 minutes of steaming time.
  • Prepare a large bowl of ice water.
  • After 12 minutes of steaming, turn off the heat and place all them in the ice bath to chill for 15 minutes, add more ice if necessary.
  • Roll the egg on a cutting board or any hard surface, until it cracks, then slip the shells right off! Dip in a bowl of water to remove any pieces of shells. You will get perfectly smooth hard boiled eggs to use in recipes.
