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.
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. What happens is the cold will contract the membrane to the egg so it’s best to cook one egg at a time and not let them sit in the water for too long.
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.
