Having trouble peeling fresh hard boiled eggs?
Me too! I recently came across a way to “boil” fresh eggs that makes them easy to peel, and I wanted to share it with everyone. I actually steamed them.
Easy to Peel “Boiled” Eggs
- Boil water in a large pot.
Place eggs in a steamer basket (just as you would for vegetables) and lower them into the pot, making sure the water is not touching the eggs. If you don’t have a steamer basket or insert you could use a metal colander or strainer that fits in your pot.
Cover and steam for 20 minutes.
Remove eggs and put directly into very cold water.
When eggs have cooled, peel and be amazed!
