    Do you let the eggs come to room temperature before adding them to the cold water? Or do you add them to the water straight from the refrigerator?

      I add them to the water straight from the refrigerator and cover them with room temperature tap water!

    How long do they sit in ice for before peeling?

      Just until they're cool enough to handle!

    Do you store them unpeeled, back in the carton for the rest of the week? Do they still come out of the shell nicely?

    I'm wondering if one should increase the time from 10 minutes to something like 12 if you live at a higher altitude where the boiling temperature is lower. (Here in Salt Lake City, it's about 204 degrees F.)
