    1. Put a pin hole in the large end of the egg, just into the air sack It won't break the egg but it will allow the boiling water in between the shell and the membrane.. makes for easier peeling

    2. Have the water boiling before you put the eggs in.

    3. When they are done, take the pan and put COLD water in it until all the water around the eggs is cool


    Peel away.
