Everybody Should Know (E.S.K.)…how to make a perfect hard-boiled egg.



You might be saying to yourself… “Girl, everybody knows how to make a hard-boiled egg”….not the case. I’m not ashamed to admit I was 25 years old when I made my first one. A little late in the game, yes, but too late?? Never.

There is really a technique to making a perfect hard-boiled egg(which you will now know!). Most people put eggs in water, boil, peel. All wrong. That’s how you end up with that grey-ish green yolk (disgusting!) and a bunch of chips in the egg from the shell sticking.

Here is my no fail… always sunshine yellow…never torn up… hard-boiled eggs.

What you need:

Eggs (please go the cage free organic route, for you and the chicken)
1 tsp baking soda
olive oil
a timer

How to:

Place eggs in pot with 1-2 inches of cool water above them, add 1 tsp of baking soda (helps in the peeling process)
Bring water to a rolling boil (about 7 minutes)
Leave eggs alone (7 minutes)
Pour out some water, and fill your pot with ice cubes, let eggs cool down (7 minutes)

How to peel like a pro:

Very gently crack the shell the shell on your counter top, roll egg back and forth till the shell feels loose
Drop a tiny bit of olive oil at top of egg or on your fingers, slide the shell off, rinse off oil under water
