Easy-To-Peel Hard Boiled Eggs

Even from farm fresh eggs!

I love hard boiled fresh eggs from free-range chickens! There IS a difference in the taste, my friend. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure, I highly recommend it. Not only is the taste superior, the nutritional benefits are better as well.

Many years ago we raised a small flock of back yard chickens. Our family grew to love their companionship. The eggs from these girls were amazing. Not only did they give us great eggs everyday, but they also kept our back yard garden free of pests and fertilized the soil about every ten seconds.

This was a beautiful and educational experience for our us and our children. We provided food, chemical-free grass, and bugs and they provided us with eggs and entertainment. I really didn’t feel there was a downside to raising a small backyard flock of chickens. I loved it all.

We were getting 5-7 eggs a day from the 7 hens. This was a lot even for a family of six. I was hard boiling eggs frequently. One annoying thing about hard boiling fresh eggs is how difficult they are to peel. Through trial and error I found a way to make them easier to peel.

I have found success on eggs that were even laid the very same day. Another bonus is that the yolks don’t get that green color around the edge. Here are the steps to achieve delicious hard boiled eggs that are easy to peel.

How to hard boil eggs that are easy to peel.

  1. Gently place your eggs in a pan. Fill your pan until the eggs are covered by 1 inch of water. Put the lid on the pan and place on the stove. Cook on high until boiling.
  2. Once your water is boiling, remove the lid, and turn your heat down to med-high or low enough so that it is boiling but not boiling over.
  3. Set the timer for 10 minutes and let the eggs boil.
  4. After ten minutes, remove the pot from the stove and drain the eggs in the sink. Cool the pan by running cold water down all sides of it. Fill the pot with only enough cool water to cover the eggs.
  5. Immediately add enough ice to the pot to completely cover the eggs. You really want to shock them by getting the water ice cold.
  6. Let the eggs sit in the ice cold water for about ten minutes.
  7. To peel: I take an egg and gently smash to top and then the bottom on the counter. Then I roll the egg on its side gently with my hand on the counter. I start to peel at one end. The peel should slide off easily. Enjoy your easy to peel hard boiled eggs!

I love that egg slicer. I use it for mushrooms, strawberries, anything that will fit. Get yours here from a very good friend of mine.
