Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

When peeling hardboiled eggs, roll eggs on center divider of sink under cold running water. Squeezing the egg with your hands. The shell will peel off easily and the membrane holds the shell almost whole.

I just boil eggs in salt water. It makes eggs very easy to peel off the eggshells. The more salt the easier eggs will peel.

After 50 years of cooking for my husband and my family, I have just learned how to boil eggs so the shells will come off easily. Learned this from my daughter-in-law. She makes beautiful delicious deviled eggs.

Cover eggs with water. Add a little salt to water. Do not put a cover on the pot. Bring water to a boil, cut heat down to medium and cook for 12 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour off water and add cold water and let eggs cool some. Peel under water while still a little warm.

Use older eggs; they will peel easier than new eggs.
