How to Make Hard Boiled Eggs That...

North Carolina, USA

... peel perfectly almost every time. I'm sure you're wondering almost? Well, not everyhing in this world is perfect, so having a whole bunch of hard boiled eggs peel perfectly 100% of the time isn't happening! 

So, you're going to need a pot, I actually have a pot that I use only for boiling my eggs in. 


The pot above was my mother's, when they moved four years ago to a smaller home she got rid of her set but I took the biggest! I remember my mom soaking the beans for bean soup in this pot, making popcorn, pasta and kielbasa stew; so there's a lot of fun memories.

    1. I know what you mean and I hope this works for you. Don't forget older eggs usually work better. But nothing is perfect, even with these methods I do have two eggs may be out of a batch that are just stubborn!

      Enjoy your day!
