Hard boil

To cook an egg until the white and yolk are solid. To hard boil an egg, bring a pan of water to the boil, add the eggs and simmer for 10-12 minutes. As soon as the eggs are cooked put them under cold running water to cool them quickly, this prevents a grey rim forming around the outside of the yolk.
