How can I prevent the pot from turning black when hard boiling eggs?
If you're using an aluminum pot I've read that by putting lemon in the bottom of the pot it will stop the pot from turning black.
You could also try adding a tablespoon of vinegar to the water when boiling the eggs.
Hmmm... I have never heard of that happening. And I've hard boiled eggs many times and never had this happen to me. What kind of pot are you using?
Susan your right all you have to do is add a piece of lemon into a pot a long with your eggs and your pot will not turn black.
