Maybe it's just me, but when I hard boil fresh eggs, I have the hardest time peeling them....I end up mauling the egg. The shells stick to the egg and the white flakes off. When I'm done, I end up about 1/2 of the egg. Is it the way I'm boiling them that makes the eggs so hard to peel? I put the fresh eggs in a pot of water, bring to a boil, then turn off the heat and let them sit for 9 minutes. I've tried peeling them while still warm, or a day or two later after they've been in the fridge with the same results...a mauled egg. Am I just a total idiot, or do other folks have this happen to them, too?
