AnswerLeave them in there for about 10-15 minutes. Depending on your stove, experiment and try and like they say a watched pot never boils.... AnswerA lot of it depends on where you live. If you live in Denver, for example, water boils at a lower temperature because of the fact that the elevation is a mile above sea level and the air is much more thin. That will mean that many things, such as eggs, will need to cook longer because the temp is lower to begin with. At sea level, water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit. (100 degrees centigrade) The temperature goes down when the altitude goes up.

Hard boiled eggs will not be hard boiled unless boiled for at least 10 minutes a six minute egg is traditionally known as a soft boiled egg so boil for 10 minutes, then turn heat off, let stand for at least 5 minutes if not needed straight away it will not hurt to leave in hot water till water has cooled.

Answer : Canada Ont. Start eggs in cold water bring to boil let boil for 10 minutes mine always come out fine.

I usually put the eggs in the pot, add enough cold water to cover the eggs then place on the stove. bring the water to a boil, remove from heat and cover with a lid. Let them sit for about 10 minutes. The eggs will be perfectly hard boiled and you won't have that dark pigment around the yolk. BTW.... I too am in southern Ontario, Canada.
