Have you ever thrown out a perfectly good hard-boiled egg because you got so frustrated trying to peel it? Here's how to cook the perfectly-peelable egg.
Step 1: Put eggs in water
Put the eggs in the pot and fill it with cold water until there is about two inches of water above the eggs.
Step 2: Boil
With the burner on high, bring the water to a boil and let the eggs boil for seven minutes.
For soft-boiled eggs, boil the eggs for four minutes instead of seven.
Step 3: Prepare an ice bath
About five minutes after the eggs have been cooking at a boil, put a tray of ice cubes into a bowl of cold water.
Step 4: Submerge eggs in bath
Once the eggs are finished, remove them with a slotted spoon and put them in the ice water.
Don't overcook the eggs or else you'll get a green ring around the yolk, which will become chalky, and the whites will have a rubbery consistency.
Step 5: Let eggs chill
Let the eggs sit in the ice water for five minutes and then drain the remaining ice and water.
Step 6: Refill bowl
Refill the bowl with room temperature water.
Step 7: Crack eggs
Crack each egg on a hard surface and submerge it in the fresh water, peeling the shell from the egg underwater.
Another way to remove the shell quickly is to break off the ends of an eggshell and then blow the egg from one end out the other.
Step 8: Rinse
Rinse each egg under cool, fresh water and serve.
Did You Know?
According to the Bible, the chicken came before the egg.
