Hard Boiling the Perfect Egg

My husband loves hard boiled eggs. I’m always boiling eggs for his lunch and sometimes they come out good and other times they don’t. Sometimes they won’t peel for anything. The shell sticks to the egg white and it turns into a big mess. You know what I mean if you’ve ever struggled with peeling a hard boiled egg that doesn’t want to peel.
It’s miserable and you end up throwing most of the egg out.

After experimenting with several different cooking methods, here is my recipe for hard boiling the perfect very fresh egg.

  • Starting with cold water in a sauce pan, add a dash of salt.
  • Add eggs to water in sauce pan. The water should be covering the eggs.
  • Bring to boil and then turn off. Leave the pan on the burner and cover it.
  • Leave on burner for 20 minutes. Remove and uncover the pan. But don’t pour out the water.
  • Leave eggs to cool in original water in the pan.
  • Once cooled, refrigerate the eggs.
  • Conclusion: Perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs that usually peel easily.

    ETA: My eggs are very fresh and this method is designed for very fresh farm eggs.
