I put my eggs in the fridge right after gathering to keep them fresh longer, but when it comes to boiling a fresh egg and trying to peel it it turns out to be a nightmare. I tried all kinds of things and finally I found my solution to making peeling easy, it's very simple, I put my eggs on the counter for four or five days before I boil them and they peel like a dream. Hope this helps some of you, try it, you'll love it. I tried it with a dozen eggs and all were very easy to peel! Good luck, let me know if it works for you!
