    Default Hard Boiled Eggs.......

    At times there appear to be many different ways to 'Peel' a hard boiled
    egg...I have my own way that sometimes works and at others, I curse!.....

    I was on Youtube a few mins ago, I was checking out 'Wine Aerators' but
    chanced upon this method shown on this 1 min video..... Has anyone tried
    this here?

    Oh man!! I've gotta try that!!! :-)


    BTW, whaddaya need a wine aerator for (besides blowing bubbles in your
    wine, that is)?

    What first springs to mind is that you've got some really big old wines
    there that need a couple hours 'breathing', and you want to cheat. I've
    heard the aerators only take a couple of mins to do the same job :-)

    If that's the case, save them till May..... I'll be down in Sidiknee for a
    week and I'll help you see if the aerators work ;-P

    The "peeling eggs" horse has been beaten to death so many times, it
    doesn't have any last legs left.

    Older eggs peel well, no matter what the method; fresh eggs don't.
    That's all you need to know.

    I put eggs in pan right out of refrig. add cool water, bring to simmer
    and then simmer for ten minutes after coming to simmer, then using a
    slotted spoon, take hot eggs out of pan, running tepid water over egg to
    protect my fingers proceed to peel and usually have no problems peeling.
    Carefully working off the membrane which may have stuck to white.

    Since we only get fresh eggs, and don't always keep track of which
    are the oldest in the fridge, we do need to know more. We steam them.
    This seems to work with fresh eggs and with older eggs. Though eggs
    laid that day will still stick a little. We put them in the little ufo
    with an inch or so of water, cover, turn on high and set the timer for
    12 minutes. Then we peel them with pretty much no trouble.

    First, I for my method, the sooner you cool the egg after boiling the easier
    it peels. This is how I peel an egg...
    After I boil them I rinse till I can hold them without getting burned. Then
    I roll the egg around (like making a meatball) on the cutting board with my
    palm. I apply enough pressure to shatter the shell all the way around without
    breaking the membrane if possible. Usually after that if you tear the membrane
    open, the shell will peel off in one piece like a ripe tangerine If you do it
    right, there is no shell left at all on the egg. I hope that makes sense.

    And steaming fresher eggs also seems to help peeling. That's why that
    microwave egg cooker works so well. It steams them.

    Ranee is right tho' that steaming even fresh eggs seems to work well.
    I used to have my own chickens also. But I generally plan ahead when
    making HB eggs for whatever recipe and "age" them by leaving them at
    room temp for 3 or 4 days. Works like a charm and they do NOT spoil:

    If I am going to boil eggs, I l will leave them on the counter for 2-3
    days before I cook them. My mother and my grandmother were raised on a
    farm and they never refrigerated their eggs or butter. My butter is at
    room temperature, but we go through it pretty fast. I refrigerate my
    eggs unless I am going to boil them.

    Well, one can always cheat. I have actually bought these when needed in
    a hurry for a recipe and they are priced reasonably locally imho. ;-)

    They are perfect every time, even to the yolk color.
