I hardboiled some eggs tonight for my delicious DEVILED EGGS :D :D :D and I was wondering something in regards to the hard boiled eggs part. The first time I made them, I put the eggs into a pot with tap water and turned the burner on and got it to boil. When I cut open the eggs, the yolks seemed to have stayed together and seemed to have that green outside you typically see. Today when I made them, I boiled the water first and THEN put the eggs in. When I took those out and cut them open, the yolks were completely yellow (no green outer part) and didn't stay together very well. Does anyone know exactly what's going on? How do I get it so that they stay together (easier to extract the yolk for making the filling in this case)? Man I love my questions. DISCUSS.
