Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Steamed 'boiled' eggs

I recently learned how to steam eggs instead of boiling them. The shell peels right off even if the eggs are stored in the fridge for several days.

Here's how:

http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/how_to_steam_eggs/

I steamed mine for 15 minutes before the ice bath. They came out perfect. The first time I tried I put 6 eggs in the steamer and the shells were touching and 3 cracked. I tried again with 4 eggs and the shells not touching and no cracked shells at all. The next few batches will determine for me if touching matters.

Going to try this on my fresh eggs. They are a bear to peal when hard boiled, with their thicker shell and all.

I use that method with a bit of water in a glass.
Shake it until the egg quits the solid sound.
The shell is fractured but not the internal membrane.
Rub your thumb across the shell and it just peels right off.

I finally figured out how/why it works, now I'm hooked.
Even showed the wife and she does it now also.
She can peel a dozen eggs in just a few minutes.

I read that older eggs work better, but I can't say that first hand since I haven't made a comparison yet.

The idea of cooking with steam and the cold water bath causes the membrane to stick to the shell instead of the egg. Seems to work for me.

Mr. method works good.
Or you can put your hard boiled eggs in a container of ice and water for 5 minutes and the shells also peal way easy. I love eggs.

We've raised chickens for decades. Never been able to figure out the best way to make "peelable" eggs. The best way we've found is to boil older eggs. We might try this recipie.
