How to Make Easy to Peel, Hard Cooked Eggs!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Perfectly peeled hard-cooked eggs have always been a challenge for me. It seems that no matter how careful I was, tiny craters were left in the egg white while trying to get the shell off.....

Not a big problem when you are making something that calls for chopped eggs, but for a dish where the finished look of the dish is important, those craters were a big issue. Guess who never took deviled eggs to any gatherings with friends or family.....

I ran across this tip at Maple Hill 101, and it really works. As it turns out, it is very easy, let me show you the process...

Easy to Peel Hard Cooked Eggs, very easy to do!

  1. Great tip! I hate it when I'm trying to make deviled eggs and the whites look terrible.

  2. I've always heard that it's harder to peel the eggs if they are fresher, because the fresh ones have a tougher membrane. Or as one blogger says "The longer the eggs sit the more the membrane beneath the shell separates from the shell, making peeling easier. " So one way to improve the look of the peeled eggs is to use older ones -- you can check the date on the carton. The other way to improve the result is to cool them quickly with plenty of ice cubes.

  3. It's weird but I never had an issue with peeling eggs until I started raising chickens a few years ago. But I have learned that if you add baking soda to the water...they peel much easier. Not every time! But most of the time.
    Nice to meet you...I just joined the Homestead blog hop! :)
