Kitchen Quick Tips - Rescuing Hard to Peel Eggs

kitchen quick tips

Hard boiled eggs that have sat in the refrigerator can be had to peel.  Submerge them in hot water for 1 minute then transfer into ice water and submerge for 1 minute.  The shell will peel off easier.

Thanks for this tip. I am terrible at boiled eggs and hubby likes them occasionally. :)

Great tip. I always waste so many layers of egg when I peel the hard ones. One time, out of pure frustration, I simply threw them out!

Your welcome Linda :)

Thanks Jing Loh. That must be discouraging. I find that keeping the boiled eggs in cold water while peeling makes the shells come off easy.
