I dont dread peeling eggs anymore. And No more waiting to peel eggs. Let me know if this helps!!! I got this from the Joy Of Cooking cook book.


  1. place eggs in pan with water and bring to a boil.
  2. boil for 12 minutes.
  3. fill a medium size bowl with cold water and a trays worth of ice cubes.
  4. place eggs in ice water after the 12 min for 2 minutes and keep water in pan boiling or bring back to a boil.
  5. Gently drop eggs back in boiling water for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  6. they are ready to peel I put them back in the ice cold water agian just to cool off for a minute.
  7. So easy and I do it every time now! I got this from the Joy Of Cooking cook book.
  8. Let me know what you think.

I had to use the dozen eggs in my fridge before they hatched.
