Ingredients:  
Large eggs
1 T salt
Water

Directions:
Directions:
1. Place your raw eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with at least 2 inches of cold water.
2. Add the salt and place the pan over high heat until it reaches a boil.
3. Turn off the heat, cover the pan with a lid and let it sit for 13 minutes.
4. After exactly 13 minutes, remove the eggs from the pan and place them in an ice-water bath, letting them cool for five minutes.
5. Carefully crack the eggs shells (making sure the majority of the shell is cracked).
6. Gently begin removing the shells. The ice-water bath will “shock” the membrane in between the egg-white and the egg shell, loosening the shell and allowing you to peel it off in nearly one piece. As needed, you can dip the egg (as you are peeling it) in and out of the water to remove any slivers of shell.
7. Serve immediately, use in a recipe or store in your refrigerator for three days
