Step 2: Cook eggs for 30 minutes. When finished, Immediately remove them from the tins, and place eggs in an ice bath (a.k.a. a bowl of Ice water) to stop the cooking process. Leave eggs in the ice bath for five minutes.

Step 2: Bring eggs to a boil. Boil for 8-10 minutes, remove now for a creamy yolk, or turn off the heat and let them sit in the hot water an additional 3-5 mins for a paler and opaque color often used for deviled eggs. 

Step 3: Move eggs to an ice bath to stop the cooking process.  Let sit 5-6 mins if serving immediately.  Let sit 10 minutes if using at a later time.

Adding salt to the water prior to boiling helps remove the shell without it breaking into a lot of pieces. 

Using an ice bath can help prevent the greenish color around the yolk that over cooked hard-boiled eggs sometimes present.
