(Jackie's) Hard-boiled Eggs

The other day I was chatting via phone with Friend Jackie while I was making hard boiled eggs. She overheard me scooping ice into a bowl and asked, "What's the racket?" I said, "I'm making a bowl of ice water to cool boiled eggs." Her response? "I don't think I've ever made a hard-boiled egg in my life." Oh dear.

Jackie, this one's for you.
