How To Peel A Hardboiled Egg - The EASY way!

  1. Cover the eggs with water and boil on low for about 12 minutes
  2. Cool the eggs by placing them in cold water with 1 teaspoon of baking soda and ice. The baking soda raises the pH level and reduces adherence. If you choose not to use baking soda, be sure to move the eggs into cold water with plenty of ice immediately after boiling
  3. Crack the top of the egg and remove a small piece
  4. Crack the bottom (wide end) of the egg and remove a small piece
  5. Hold the egg in your hand and blow vigorously into the narrow end of the egg, which will expel it out the wide end
Doesn’t get much easier than that! Just be ready to catch it when it comes out…

Here is a video to show you how... It's really amazing!

After raising chickens for 10 years, I've found the older the egg, the easier it peels. But, hey, any new info on the subject is always welcome. BTW, this might be a stupid questiond, but what does MIL stand for? I'm just trying to follow along... :)

:) MIL means Mother in Law... I'm too lazy to type it out! :)

Speaking of my MIL she just hard boiled some eggs we got from a neighbor... Super-fresh... despite the fact that I told her to wait a week... Sigh... but of course... she is my "MIL" Haha!!
