Before boiling the eggs, first take them out of the refrigerator and bring them to room temperature.
Bring the water to a boil in a pot (it should be a rolling boil).
Set the eggs in a spoon or ladle and gently put them into the pot, being careful not to crack them.
Let the eggs boil for 7 minutes (for soft-boiled). You can adjust the boiling time as desired.
Remove from heat. Put the eggs into a bowl of cold water and peel them while keeping them in the water.
The peel should slip right off That's all there is to it!

Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to know why boiled eggs can be peeled easily sometimes and then they're impossible to peel other times. I did some research and this was the result. With this method, I have no more problems peeling boiled eggs! This method works so perfectly that I want to pass it down to my child (who's still a baby, though) and grandchildren (even thoughdon't have any yet) and to future generations!
Through my research, I concluded that if the egg whites coagulate as quickly as possible, they separate from the thin inner skin of the egg, making it easy to peel. So starting with cold eggs and cold water doesn't work!!!
