    Easy-peeling boiled eggs: pressure cooker!

    Sun Feb 26, 2012 12:38 pm Groupie
    Okay, I know this is going to be popping up just before Easter, as it always does. I have just tried a method that is supposed to yield easily-peeled hard boiled eggs...and it DOES!
    Unfortunately, you do need a pressure cooker (I love mine).
    Cooking whole eggs by steam under low pressure in the presssure cooker for six minutes yields perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs that the shell just peels off from like an orange. This is how commercially made hard bvoiled eggs are cooked. Tender whites with no rubberiness, too. And you don't need to use old eggs, fresh work just fine. The "egg stands" are not necessary, I stood three up and let the fourth lie on its side in the steamer basket and it cooked just fine. I used 2 cups of water because that's the minimum required for my pressure skillet.I can totally vouch for this method! Laura's techniques and web site/blog are wonderful.

    wow! Thanks for sharing! I can honestly say...I have never heard about this technique! I think I would have been scared to try it icon_eek.gif
    I still use my little Cuisinart egg cooker. I always thought the reason they were easy to peel...because I poke a hole in each one with a pin ??
    But if you color eggs for could bleed into the egg...anyhow
    DH and I have been talking about delving into the world of pressure cookers rotfl.gif

    Try the above link again. I think the website is back up.

    Link is working for me. You can do a Google search and access it that way. I will add this: I've found that five minutes instead of six works better for me (I have a pressure skillet, not a deep pressure cooker, might explain the difference).

    I found out what happened. She lost her domain for a couple of days, but got that straightened out (cyber extortion) and now all is back to normal. Try it again.
