You will get advice to only use old eggs for hard boiling.
We raise our own hens and have no intention of letting the eggs age if
we want deviled eggs or egg salad.
First, don't boil them. Absolute best way is to steam them. Even fresh
from the hen eggs peel just fine using this method:

Put an inch or two of water in a pot.
Place eggs in a suitable container like a colander and put it in the
pot. Do not let the water touch the eggs.
Cover the pot.
Bring the water to a boil.
Continue boiling for 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and let sit for another 10 minutes.
Fill the pot with cold water.
Take the eggs one by one and crack all over with the back of a spoon
then toss them back in the cold water.
Start peeling once all the eggs are cracked and the shells will slip
off easily.

Hi Bjørn,

Thank you!

How do you do that? Any special tools?

You can buy an egg pricker. I used to have one. I think it came from a
dollar store. Can also use a thick sewing needle.

Yes, or a small tool from the kitchen department of a general or hardware
store. Often cup-shaped with a spring-loaded pin in the center. Press the
egg down to pierce. (I'm not about to use my fingerpricker!! :-) )



Aw c'mon, live dangerously. ;-)

Hey.... there is easy way to peal an egg shells. Boil egg for 15 minutes and then take those boiled eggs in bowl and pour cold water into it crake that egg shell by beating around it, then peal by using two hands, shell smoothly removes out without any scraps on eggs. Like this way goes for boiled potato too to removes its skin.

You're not adding cold eggs to boiling water are you?

I tried all the suggestions I could find -- salt, vinegar, baking soda
in the water; old eggs, new eggs; cold eggs, room temperature eggs --
didn't make a whit of difference. I was lucky to get half of the
hard-cooked eggs to peel. I can only guess that it has something to
do with our hard well water -- never had this problem before we lived
in Podunk.

I can't remember where I found it -- I steam them. They all peel
perfectly. Get the water boiling, put the steamer in the pot and
cover. For large eggs it takes 18 minutes -- nicely cooked with no
green around the yolks. Run cold water over them for 5 or 10 minutes.
I also can't seem to peel a "dry" hard-cooked egg. I have to run
water over them while I peel them.

Good luck.



You could always try eggies. They work as advertised.

Usually. Please elucidate?


No, no, no, no. Put eggs in pot. Fill pot with water. Bring to boil.
Turn off stove. Cover and let sit for 17 minutes. Dump out hot water,
and plunge into cold water (or dump ice cubes over the eggs).

I love 5 minute eggs. Cooked whites with hot runny yolks.

For years I had a family that all liked their eggs differently boiled. I
would put all the eggs into a pot with some salt (supposed to hkeep
from cracking) and put very warm tap water to cover. Put on the fire an
dwhen boiled, turn off and remove 2 eggs for my husband. walk to the
dining foyer and give him eggs. return to stove adn remove next 2 eggs
for me and repeat walking proceedure adn retun to stove. remove next 2
eggs for younger son and return to stove and remove last two egs for older
son who liked , what he use to clall as a baby, no0juice eggs. It is all
a matter of timeing. /but one questions. How do you make devled eggs
with loosish yolks? For that you really need those no-juice eggs.

I don't understand the problems with all these egg cooking. I have been
scrabling eggs sine I was about 8 or 10. It's about the easierst thing to
cook, unless you simply suny side up fry them. How much of a learning
curve is there for this kindof easystuff. Now if you were discussing how
to make a geat roast turkey for Thanksgiving, that has a learning curve
and I hope my old one is still working because I am makign the
thanksgiving diner this year after quite a few years of not doing it. I
have high standarads and not as much strength and staminaas I used to, so
I am concerned, but expect ots of help form my kinds and older
granddaughters. Let us pray:-)

My first attempt was at age 3. My mom caught me standing on a chair at the
stove. She helped me from there. I am sure that I probably didn't do
something right. That part I don't remember. But I have never had trouble
with those. Have had trouble in recent years with hard boiled not being
cook through enough. Now I just by the pre-boiled if I need them for a
salad recipe or something. Nobody will eat them otherwise.

I think eggs may be the first thing young children learn to cook. I
mean, how hard is it?
