Put eggs in water
Put the eggs in the pot and fill it with cold water until there is about two inches of water above the eggs.
With the burner on high, bring the water to a boil and let the eggs boil for seven minutes.
Prepare an ice bath
About five minutes after the eggs have been cooking at a boil, put a tray of ice cubes into a bowl of cold water.
Submerge eggs in bath
Once the eggs are finished, remove them with a slotted spoon and put them in the ice water.
Let eggs chill
Let the eggs sit in the ice water for five minutes and then drain the remaining ice and water.
Refill the bowl with room temperature water.
Crack each egg on a hard surface and submerge it in the fresh water, peeling the shell from the egg underwater.
Rinse each egg under cool, fresh water and serve.
