I have had a few problems with trying to hard boil organic fresh chicken eggs. They were usually hard to peel and it would take about half of the egg white with the shell. I ran across this recipe from my sister, of all people...yes, I was skeptical at first...lol! :P Anyway, after you use this simple recipe your eggs will no longer be hard to peel. It works even on store bought/farm eggs. I just prefer fresh eggs because they taste so much better. I wish I could have chickens in the city! I never knew what I was missing till my daughters great grandmother got 8 chickens. They eat poms, strawberries, melons, tomatoes, bugs, worms... spoiled little hens. lol! They have the best eggs though.
- Put the eggs in pot.
- Fill the pot with water just enough to cover the eggs.
- Add salt (optional).
- On high temperature, bring to a rapid boil.
- Cover pot.
- Turn off burner.
- Let sit for 20 minutes on the warm burner.
- Drain water, put eggs back in carton or bowl and put in refrigerator.
- Eat them once they cool.
Loved this method. I used 18 eggs and didn't measure the water, I just covered the eggs with water. I did add salt and followed the rest of the steps as written. This worked out perfectly. The eggs peeled easily. Will be using this method again!
