PERFECTION IN PEELING FARM FRESH EGGS
If you have ever attempted to boil and peel farm fresh eggs, you know it is no easy task. I have worked for several years attempting to try various suggestions. Even after I perfected the job, I attempted to improve what I had discovered. There is no improving perfection. Here is how to boil and peel fresh eggs. Do not waver from the directions under any circumstances.
1. Place eggs and water and 2 (two) Tablespoons of salt in pan covered with lid.
2. Bring water to boiling and reduce heat to simmer. Keep covered and simmer for 15 minutes.
3. Drain hot water in sink and run cool water over eggs. Drain cool water and place ice over eggs. Fill pan with cool water and leave eggs in water and ice for exactly ten minutes.
4. Lightly tap the egg on counter to crack shell all around and roll between your hands. Start the peel on the narrow end of the egg, being careful to catch that thin film. Once the peel begins you can slip the entire shell off the egg as if your are removing a little jacket.
5. Shout Huzzah!
