Recently, people have been afraid of eating eggs because of the growing perception that they only bring bad cholesterol to the body.

Many studies refute this claim. Eggs are necessary for the human body because they contain important proteins and vitamin D.

Fears of increased cholesterol are mostly related to the amount of eggs consumed.

The Easter holidays are coming. As we know, tradition dictates that we decorate hard-boiled eggs richly and colorfully.

What do you need to know to make the best hard-boiled eggs?

1. Place the eggs in a single layer on the bottom of the pot. Cover them with cold water twice their own height. Heat the stove after putting the eggs in the pot.

Add a spoon or two of vinegar to the water. It helps to prevent cracking of the shell and to make it easier to separate from the egg white when peeling.

According to some, adding 1 teaspoon of s alt to water also helps against cracking.

2. Once the water is boiling,lower the heat to medium. Boil the eggs for about 12 minutes to hard boil.

Then turn off the heat and leave them in the hot water for another 12 minutes.

Depending on the type of eggs and their quantity, you may need to keep them in the hot water for a few more minutes.

3. Pour the water out of the pot. It is important, however, not to let them cool down too much before painting, as the temperature difference can cause cracking. We know that egg dyes are used hot. If the eggs are already cold they may crack.

Boiled eggs can be consumed within 4-5 days, no more, because processes of rotting and emitting odors begin.
