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.
