Perfect Easy-Peel Hard-Boiled Eggs

I got this "recipe" maybe I should say technique from Kittencal. I do not like eggs, but what I dislike more than eggs is having to peel them. It never peels correctly for me! I end up with a big mess and half my egg ends up in the sink. Here Kittencal gives us the perfect way to cook an easy peel egg just in time for Easter!! Thanks Kitten!!


Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs (or you may increase)
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • water, to cover
  • 3 cups ice cubes (or use as much as desired)
Directions

  1. Place the eggs in a saucepan.
  2. Cover the eggs with lukewarm water.
  3. Add in vinegar and pinch salt.
  4. Bring to a full boil over medium heat; boil for 2 minutes (start timing after the water reaches a full boil).
  5. Remove from heat cover with a tight lid.
  6. Allow the eggs to stand for 11 minutes.
  7. Drain the eggs a couple times under very cold water.
  8. Cover the eggs with cold water then add in some ice.
  9. Allow the eggs to sit in ice water for about 3 minutes.
  10. Drain and peel.

I will be trying this soon...thanks for the tip! I love hard boiled eggs, but sometimes they are so stinking hard to peel.
