This video teaches the viewer how to hard boil eggs. Insert the eggs into a pot of water at room temperature. The water should come two inches above the egg. With the pot on the stove, turn your heat setting to simmer. They can boil for 2 to 3 minutes for soft boiled eggs and 7 to 9 minutes for hard boiled eggs. When the eggs are done boiling, put them in a separate bowl. Pour cold water into the bowl and allow the eggs to sit. When they are cool enough to be handled, you can peel the shell off under running water.
