This is familiar I made pickled eggs and the eggs inside look like they survived heavy artillery. Half of the eggs went with the shells, the membrane was stuck hard to egg, not stuck hard to shell.
It'll be a while before I do another big pot because I've got several jars of pickled eggs to get through, but I will try the bicarb in the water, and I'll give the cracking all over and squeezing a go, and the pressure cooker a go. I'll report back in 2020....
(If I was boiling a couple of eggs just to eat, I used to boil up the water and add the eggs, but when you are doing a huge pot of them, it's too much trouble to try to do it that way, and hard to time because by the time you get the 20th (or whatever) egg in there, the first one's already had more cooking time. All the "people" (Martha Stewart etc) on youtube say to bring the water to the boil with the eggs in it and it's the only way to do a huge pot, I think.)
I might try those bedevilled eggs though. I'm sure I could achieve something just like the photo.
