Ted’s Tip No. 59

20160321-080303.jpg The very freshest eggs are not always the easiest to peel when making hard boiled eggs. As we head into deviled egg season, buy your eggs 5 to 7 days before you need to use them for a much easier time peeling.

  1. I learned a new way to hard boil eggs and since then have never had a hard time peeling them…ever. Just get your water boiling, enough to cover the eggs, and carefully set the eggs in with a ladle, boil them for 10-12 minutes depending on the firmness you want. I’ve been doing this for several years now and it has never failed, no matter how fresh the eggs are.

  2. I’ve heard that. Any other tips? I’ve heard that pricking one end with a push pin helps. I assume that lets some water get in between the membrane and the egg stuff.

  3. I’ve heard that. Any other tips/ I’ve also heard, and do, pricking one end with a pin helps… sometimes yes, sometimes no. But, I think it is the freshness of the egg.

  4. I will try for sure!
