    Chef Dee's Note:

    Easy to peel is number one when you are boiling eggs. When I was in catering, we boiled about 5000 eggs a year, maybe more. This was our method, and one I use at home today. I have scaled it down for your home kitchen.

      I reviewed this recipe years ago and continue to use it as a guide whenever I boil eggs. From time to time I will go to "My Reviews" just to remind myself how long to "boil" and how many minutes to "chill". It's still my favorite formula for boiling fresh farm eggs. However, today, July 4th, 2013, there was either a web site glitch OR they have made web site changes AGAIN that I don't understand. I was unable to find this recipe in "My Reviews". No words matched. So I am re-reviewing in order to bump this up and to let other know this is the perfect formula for easy to peel boiled eggs.

      Excellent!!!! I just had the easiest time ever peeling a hard boiled egg. I followed the directions exactly and this technique worked like a charm. This is the way I will hard boil eggs from now on. THANK YOU!
