Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Overcooked hard boiled egg yolks are green and unappetizing! To get perfect results every time, cover eggs in plenty of cold water and bring to a rapid boil for one minute. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 15 minutes. Rinse in cold water and peel while still warm.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
