Boil a perfect egg every time..
[QUOTE=healthy11;1094809]No matter which way I hard-boil an egg I can never seem to peel them without a lot of the white coming off with the shell. I've tried adding salt or baking soda to the water. I have tried different cooking times. I've tried boiling and baking.
Has anyone found a way to successfully peel eggs? It drives me crazy!!!:mad:[/QUOTE]
I found this over Christmas and it works every time:
Half an inch of water in a pot - any pot, any size
Bring to a boil with lid on
Add eggs, hot, cold, 2, 3, 5 whatever
Lid on, boil for 6.5 mins for a runny center. I do them for 7 and half mins for firm centers.
Remove from water, run cold water over the eggs for 30 secs
Peels easily and works every time!
This works because it is a combination of boil and steam, and the water never goes off the boil when u addd the eggs.
