Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

In order to peel a hard boiled egg without it breaking. Roll it on the counter top so the shell cracks into small pieces. The shell will easily peel off leaving the hard boiled egg perfect.

If you sprinkle a small amount of salt in the water when boiling the eggs, the shells will come off very easily. (02/03/2005)

Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

My mom always added salt to the water that she boiled eggs in. She said that the salt helped to keep the egg yolk and white from escaping out of any cracks in the eggs. We (my parents) raised chickens for their eggs and of course we didn't sell the cracked eggs and so we got to eat them.

Also the older the eggs the easier they are to peel when hardboiled. Fresh eggs are nearly impossible to peel cleanly. But nowadays, eggs in the store...how soon do they arrive at the store after being laid by the chicken? Just use the oldest eggs you have in your fridge.

Peeling Eggs

New eggs are hard to peel after being boiled. I hold them a week and then boil them. They last several weeks so one week is not harmful. They peel without sticking.

I roll them on the countertop to crack the shell, and then run them under cool water to peel with ease. (02/15/2005)

They aren't always easy to peel just by rolling them on the counter top. I will try the old egg method, as well as the salt. (07/29/2006)
