Can someone here help with what I might be doing wrong when making hard boiled eggs? I cover the eggs in cold water bring to a boil, simmer uncovered for 9 minutes, and then zap them in cold ice water. They peel fine and the egg is cooked through but the outside isnt perfectly smooth. Does it have something to do with the freshness of the egg or am I doing something wrong? If anyone can help me out that would be great because I have to make a perfect hard boiled egg for part of my final this semster.
