Fresh Eggs Don’t Peel When Boiled

October 19, 2007

Here are a couple of fresh-laid eggs, carefully hard-cooked and even more carefully peeled . . . they ended up in egg salad, of course.  They’re just too ugly for anything else.  That’s country life for you.

    The trick to a beautiful boiled egg is to leave those fresh farm eggs behind. Use store bought ones that have been sitting in your refrigerator for a month or so, Melynda. Who would ever have thought that you’d need advice from me about cooking?

    what if you left the eggs for a bit rather than use ’em just popped out …

    Tanner and Jo, you’re quite right. If I remembered to write the date on each egg when they came in to the house to be washed and put away, then I could choose the oldest ones to boil. Or, failing that, I could give up and get my eggs at the grocery store. But alas, neither one seems very likely. And as long as I’m not preparing the Seder plate or devilled eggs, it works out okay.
