Keeping It Safe
"Eggs-actly" how long is it safe to store your eggs? Refrigerate raw eggs (in the shell) in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks; refrigerate any leftover egg yolks and egg whites (out of the shell) for up to 2 days; and refrigerate hard-cooked eggs for up to 1 week.
How to Peel Hard-Cooked Eggs
Buy eggs ahead of time for hard cooking; very fresh eggs (less than 3 days old) are the most difficult to peel. The older the egg, the larger the air cell within and the more easily it can be peeled after cooking. Thoroughly chilling the hard-cooked eggs firms up the whites, making it easier to remove the shell. Peeling the eggs under running water also makes the job easier.
How to Hard Cook Eggs
Place eggs in single layer in saucepan; add enough water to completely cover eggs by at least 1 inch. Bring water boil; cover. Remove saucepan from heat; let stand 15 min. Drain eggs; immediately place in bowl of ice water. Let stand until completely cooled, changing water if necessary. Perfectly hard-cooked eggs will have a firm yellow center with no greenish tinge. Hard-cooked eggs in their shells can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.
How to Seed a Cucumber
Trim ends from cucumber, then cut lengthwise in half. Use the tip of a teaspoon to gently scrape out seeds from each half starting at the top and moving downward in one direction.
