I am trying to make hard boiled eggs that are "EASY" to peel. The eggs are cooked perfectly but, are usually difficult to peel because part of the egg shell is stuck to the egg. How do you people get your HB eggs to peel easy? Ed

Peel it under running water.

Baking soda, about a tablespoon per dozen eggs, added to the water. Once boiled, dunk the eggs in ice water.

Boil them in salted water, then when done run under cold water and peel still warm but cooled enough to hold in your hand.

I’ve always heard to use old eggs - near their expiration date. Seems to work well for me.


Whatever's on sale...

We recently discussed this:

Steaming them instead of boiling helps.

White vinegar works better than anything else I've ever tried, and I've tried a lot.

I just asked one of my customers, a butcher shop, about this recently-they boil them, put them straight into ice water-they stated they practically peel themselves!

No they don't, unless maybe if they are quite old. smile

Heat the eggs in water until the water starts to boil, then remove from heat, cover, and let sit for 15 minutes.

one thing for sure eggs are an excellent source of many essential nutrients, eat your eggs + forget the carby xtras that raise blood sugar + contribute to todays obese society + high number of diabetics!

This is what I do but then I put them in ice water for another 15 minutes. Take them out and crack the shell very well and peel under running water. Always works for me.

The easiest way I have found, with eggs I had stored in the refrigerator so they were cold still, is to heat the water to boiling before putting the eggs in.

That's it, then let them boil for 10 minutes, then take off the burner to sit a few (less than 5) more minutes in the pot in the hot water, before putting them in a washed egg carton, sort of turned sideways so they sit up and air dry.

I used to let them boil 3 minutes longer then put in cold water afterwards but found it did not make much difference, they were about the same easy peeling either way.

Adjust the times above based on how done you want them. I prefer them just done enough that the yolk is lighter yellow all the way to the middle.
