    Cook's tips

    Pierce the rounded end of each egg with a pin before cooking to help stop the shell from cracking.

    Cooling the eggs under cold water stops them from cooking further and prevents a dark ring forming around the yolk.

    For easy peeling, peel the eggs under cold running water over a colander to collect all the bits of shell. The water stops the shell from sticking to your fingers and the egg.
