|Sadly, this is what my hard boiled eggs look like peeled.|
I have no problem cooking a soft boiled egg to near perfection.
But I cannot, not matter how hard I try, make a hard boiled egg.
Well, I can BOIL the egg. Try to get the shell off the damn thing.
Even with ALL the trick: bring the water to a boil and turn off the heat, leaving the eggs set for 15 minutes; or boil the eggs for 5 minutes, then plunge them into ice water; vinegar in the water; baking soda in the water. I even read on line where some woman had instructions how how to BAKE the eggs into a hard state.
This whole egg boiling thing is causing me concern because I need a couple dozen for a party this weekend. I hate picking the shells off cause some shells always end up IN the dish I'm preparing.
Thankfully the eggs will be chopped up. I'm pretty sure if I was taking deviled eggs, I'd be a basket case.
Hopefully some miracle will occur and the eggs will peel easily. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
