    If you cook on low pressure, do you have to adjust the time?

    I’m not sure why some of the eggs cracked, but I certainly didn’t care. Absolutely perfect! Thank you!!

    Use a sharp upholstery needle to make a hole in the large end of your eggs. Turn them large end up in the egg box to do this. Position your needle in the center of the egg and then tap the other end of the needle gently with the flat handle of a table knife, just enough for the point of your needle to penetrate the eggshell about 1/8 inch. Leave eggs resting in egg box. Fill large pot with water (1 to 1&1/2 quarts) Add 2 tablespoons table salt to the water. Bring water to a full rolling boil, then lower pierced eggs slowly and gently to the boiling water. You can use a steamer basket that fits down inside your kettle all the way so that you can add all the eggs at once. The water should come back to a boil fairly quickly. Boil eggs uncovered for 12 minutes. Remove eggs from pot and place immediately in another container of very cold water. Let rest about ten minutes. Your eggs will always peel perfectly, every time, no matter their size or age. Trust me, I’ve been doing this for years with 100% success. The salted water penetrates the small hole in the egg and the inner membrane, but not the egg itself. This makes the membrane cling tight to the eggshell, and the shells slip right off. The eggs will not be “salty”. This is great if you don’t want to use your pressure cooker or don’t have one. Enjoy!
