TIP *To hard-cook eggs, place in single layer in saucepan. Cover with water; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low to maintain a bare simmer; simmer 9 minutes. (Water should boil very slowly and gently, not rapidly.) Immediately place eggs in bowl of ice water; let stand until cold. Peel under running water.
