Hard Boiled Eggs

Fact of the Day: hard-boiled eggs

The heat involved in boiling the egg causes chemical changes to the soft matter which makes it harden. The discoloring that sometimes occurs (gray or green) is caused by iron and sulphur compounds that accumulate when eggs are overcooked. Although the discolored egg yolks don't look great, it does not affect the taste or nutritional value of the eggs.

Hard boiled eggs are fun, fun to eat... not so fun to peel, 'specially when you're doing a bunch for deviled eggs. Deviled eggs ARE, however, worth the effort. :-)
