You already know farm fresh eggs are better for you in so many ways, but how do you peel them quickly without making a mess out of the whites and losing half the egg?
For a long time I dreaded peeling eggs, I was horrible at it! The shells would stick to the egg like glue and I’d loose half of the egg white. I had heard that it was easier to peel an older egg than a fresh egg.
But it turns out that it doesn’t matter what kind of egg you're using - whether it’s straight off the farm or from the store - it has everything to do with the process.
My husband loves hard boiled eggs as a snack and I love them in my tuna salad.
Here’s how -
- Bring a pot of water to boil: place eggs in the boiling water for 6-8 minutes (soft yolk) or 10-12 minutes (hard yolk)
- Pour out the hot water: either pour through a colander or just tip the pot slowly down the sink, being careful not to let the eggs fall out
- Crack the egg shells: roll the eggs around in the pot for a few seconds until most of the shells are cracked or gently hit them against the pot to crack the shell
- Cover with ice + water: let the cracked eggs sit in the ice water bath for 5-10 minutes and peel egg shells
Voila! Perfectly peeled hard boiled eggs!
