    I feel really dumb right now....hahah.

    How do you hard-boil an egg....? (specific details if possible, I don't want them to crack)

    And how long can you keep them in the fridge?

    you can buy egg timers that you put in the water and it will tell you when they are done and if you have one of them i would just place the egg in the pot before you put the water in it and just be carefull

    uhh u put an egg in boiling water for about 15 mins; turn it over a couple times or the yoke will settle on one side

    not sure how long they last in the fridge

    Another tip - take a pin and poke a hole just through the shell in the 'flat' end of the egg. Get your water boiling and gently set the eggs in - you will see air bubbles coming out of the hole you poked in the egg, that allows the white to expand without breaking the shell and making a mess. 13-15 minutes later remove eggs from pan and submerge in ice water to stop the cooking. Peel and store air tight in the fridge for up to a week.

    Edit: it is actually easier to peel boiled eggs that aren't super fresh. Obviously you want to eat eggs that are still good but if they have been sitting in yor fridge for a week or so (but still within expiration) they peel a lot easier than "fresher" eggs.
