Peeling boiled eggs is my least favorite chore in the kitchen. I don't like to get the egg shells under my nails. A friend taught me a neat trick several years ago. He didn't have any nails to lift the shells. I suppose this is a tip for both women and men!

If you peel a penny size spot at the pointed end, and a quarter size spot at the fat end, you can firmly hold the egg, blow into the penny end, and the egg will pop out at the quarter end. Works every time.
There are even a few uTube movies showing it, if these instructions are not clear enough.
This is a great tip for peeling eggs.
I use my daughter in law's method for cooking the eggs. Cover eggs with water and add a little salt. Do not put a lid on the pot. Start on high. When water comes to a boil, cut heat down to medium and set timer for 12 minutes. After cooking, drain water and cover with cold water. Let set for a little while then peel while eggs are still warm.
My least favorite chore in the kitchen is cleaning fresh pig intestines. Second least favorite is putting out grease fires.
I boil my eggs for 3.5 mins. soft and 4 mins. hard boiled. Run them under cold water and then just tap the egg on the kitchen counter until one end is cracked. Put finger nail under cracked egg and peel. Simple & quick.
