From David Tanis' A Platter of Figs and Other Recipes. Let me just say that as a college student one of the edible discoveries that left me the most jubilant was that of hard-boiled eggs. Simple, convenient, nutritious, versatile, inexpensive, cute, and even aesthetically pleasing in a niçoise salad - what more could I ask for? So it was a good day when I came across a recipe that actually showed me HOW to boil the perfect egg. I tried it and...I've been hooked ever since. I boil eggs every 3 days (3 at a time), and they have become a staple in my hectic student life.
