I can't avoid Hard Boiled Egg Green Ring no matter what I do. Is it me or is it the egg? Why most of the time there is this greenish ring around the yolk of my hard boild eggs? What am I doing wrong?
I tried getting fresh eggs to no avail, talked to the people at the market they had no idea and now I turn to you the cooks busy in the kitchen you must have an idea. Please help?
The discoloration that sometimes we notice around hard boiled yolks results from a reaction between iron in the yolk and sulfur in the egg white. This happens when the eggs are boiled at too high temperature for too long.
