Hard Boiling Farm Fresh Eggs

I have expressed in the past that hard boiled eggs are one of my favorite things ever and I also mentioned that I hate peeling them! Especially fresh eggs, they fall apart, pieces of shell fly everywhere and it just takes takes way too long.  

The older eggs become the easier it is to peel the shell because the PH level is higher which allows the membrane to loosen

 A few blogs ago I showed you guys my preferred method when hard boiling but now, that's all in the past! This was beyond easy, fast and not nearly as messy. I will include a video at the end for peeling and a link to my favorite recipe to use with hard boiled eggs.

 

Things you will need:
Eggs
Muffin tin
Bowl
Ice 
Optional: Knife
  
To start preheat you oven (yes oven) to 325 degrees Fahrenheit
Place one egg in each muffin tin

 

Bake for 30 minutes
About 5 minutes before they're finished baking get your bowl and fill it 1/3 full of ice and cold water.
Carefully scoop the eggs out of the tins using a ladle or large spoon
Place the eggs into the ice water

 I only had one casualty

This is where you want to act quickly. I had no choice but to stop peeling to tend to the kids and I noticed a huge difference with the eggs that sat in the cold water for too long. It made them so much harder to peel. 

 Quick tip: If you don't need perfect looking eggs and you're making an egg salad, just grab a knife and carefully cut it in half the long way and peel the shell off and that's it!  Perfectly boiled and peeled eggs! If you have egg pieces stuck on just give them a quick rinse.

If you need them to look nice for deviled eggs just peel them the old fashioned way but tapping the egg on a hard bowl a few times then peeling the shell away.
