Can you freeze hard-boiled eggs? If so, what is the safest way to do this and how long is the freezer life?

Cooked egg whites don’t freeze well. When the egg is thawed, the white is both watery and rubbery. You can freeze the yolk, however, and, once thawed, crumble it on salads or use it for a garnish. But the yolk won't have the smooth texture one finds in a freshly hard-boiled egg.
