The Secret To Easy-To-Peel Boiled Eggs

Boiled eggs are a wonderful additive to many dishes. When chopped in salads or dressings, the way the egg looks when it comes out of the peel is not important.

However, if you are doing a dish like deviled eggs where the eggs need to be presentable, you have to be careful when peeling. Many times you end up tossing some edible eggs because of their pocked appearance.

So, how can you keep from wasting eggs in this manner?

The first issue could be the TYPE of eggs you are using. Many people look for fresher eggs and buy free-range when they can. However, the fresher the egg, the, the more difficult they are to peel because the albumen, or egg white, sticks to the shell if the egg is fresher. As an egg ages, it doesn’t stick as much. ┬áHere is a secret when using fresher eggs. Add baking soda to the water when boiling! The baking soda passes through the shell and helps to separate the white from the shell when it is ready to peel.

So, to make your eggs easier to peel, add a teaspoon of baking soda to your water and you will be surprised at how nice your eggs look. Now, there will be no waste and you will be happy to share your eggs at the company picnic.
