    I just learned this, and maybe it's not new, but I thought I'd pass it along to anyone who didn't know about it.

    A friend at work about burst a vein in her forehead trying this method. Didn't work. Someone here said the key is lots of salt.

    [​IMG] Yard eggs (as my granny called them) are harder to peel than store bought eggs. She taught me to peel them while still hot under warm running water to help the shells come off easier. I don't always get a perfectly peeled yard egg, but works better for me than any other way I've ever tried.

    To be honest though, the only time I really care what the boiled egg looks like after peeling is when I'm doing deviled eggs.

    Make sure they are HARD boiled. That makes a huge difference. Rinse until cool under cold water.

    Hit the bottom of the egg to the counter. This is where the air sac is (that flat part on a hard boiled egg). It should break perfectly right there. The peeling should be a cinch.

    For me, it works EVERY time.
