Easy Peeling Hard-Boiled Eggs

  Swallow Hill Farm     Jan 17, 2016

We've tried almost a dozen techniques for making easy peel hard-boiling eggs from fresh, free-range eggs. Most techniques produce limited results, but thanks to a recipe we found on YouTube, we can now produce flawless, easy-to-peel hard-boiled eggs from the freshest of our free range chicken eggs. This is a great technique to know if you like to make deviled eggs, pickled eggs, egg salad or other recipes that require hard-boiled eggs.

  1. Bring a pot full of water (enough to cover the eggs to be boiled) to a rolling boil before putting in the eggs
  2. Gently lower eggs into the boiling water (with eggs directly from the refrigerator)
  3. Boil the eggs for 13-14 minutes, then
  4. Run cold water into the pot for about 1 minute
  5. Pour ice into the pot, with the cold water
  6. Let eggs cool, in pot with ice water, for 15 minutes
  7. Remove eggs from water, crack and peel
