I have a question. I read your recipe for boiling eggs perfectly… but… what can be done to keep the egg yolks from moving to the side…i.e, what can be done to keep them in the center of the egg???? When I boil them for deviled eggs, I often find the yolks at the end of the oval… I want them in the middle.
Thanks a Million
One of our readers wrote this tip for keeping yolks centered. I found this confirmed in several other places, though I've not tried it myself.
"I find that gently stirring the eggs as they come to a boil will keep the yolk centered and add a tsp of vinegar keeps them from cracking"
Also, use grade AA when making hardboiled eggs. Their yolks are more centered to begin with. Eggs are placed in their cartons large end up to keep the air cell in place and the yolk centered. So keep them stored that way in your refrigerator, too.
Hope this helps,
