Put one layer of eggs in a pan and cover the eggs with salted water with a 1/8 cup of white vinegar .The water should be about 1 inch over the eggs . The vinegar will stop the eggs from cracking .

Bring to a boil and cook for one minute .

Lower the temp to simmer and cook for one more minute

Take the pan off of the burner and put a  cover on the pot and  let stand for 12 minutes .

Then run water into the pan to cool down the eggs . Take the eggs and peel them  .Take one egg and cut it in half .

You should see a perfect yellow center with no green ring around the yellow .
