This will cause the eggs to stop cooking, and help you separate the egg from the shell.
I like to do this by carefully ladling them into a bowl full of cool water.
Once they've cooled, I drain the water and leave the eggs in this bowl in the fridge.
And you're done! As easy as learning tying a tie!
I love to cook, but I didn't start learning under the easiest circumstances. I was such a bad cook that I once burned macaroni and cheese, but my inability to make boxed pasta was motivating.
