Place eggs in single layer in saucepan; add enough water to completely cover eggs by at least 1 inch. Bring water boil; cover. Remove saucepan from heat; let stand 15 min. Drain eggs; immediately place in bowl of ice water. Let stand until completely cooled, changing water if necessary. Perfectly hard-cooked eggs will have a firm yellow centre with no greenish tinge. Hard-cooked eggs in their shells can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.
Buy eggs ahead of time for hard cooking; very fresh eggs (less than 3 days old) are the most difficult to peel. The older the egg, the larger the air cell within and the more easily it can be peeled after cooking. Thoroughly chilling the hard-cooked eggs firms up the whites, making it easier to remove the shell. Peeling the eggs under running water also makes the job easier.
