I have a lot of eggs at the moment as all four hens are now laying regularly so 28 per week is a lot for me and Trev. Poor old Dolly is trying to keep up with the youngsters but looks very pleased with herself at the moment - here she is in her very own little ray of sunshine. (It's pouring while I am writing this!)
* This type of jar is on special offer at the moment so very good value.
So, I had 24 eggs which I hard boiled - put them into cold water, brought them to a gentle boil in my big pan and then cooked for 15 minutes. I had a bowl of cold water ready in the sink and used a slotted spoon to lift them out of the hot water, and then drop carefully into the cold water. This helps to stop a black ring forming around the yolk of the egg.
