With Easter around the corner this is a handy tip. I dislike it when I peel an Easter egg and the egg comes with the shell. I have read and read ideas on how to get the shells off of hard boiled eggs. Some ideas talked about the water temp and this cooling down system, to bothersome.
I have an easy solution that always works! I just dump a little BAKING SODA into the water. I am guessing it's a tablespoon size.
Step 1- Fill the pan with water
Step 2 -Dump the baking soda in. (I just dump it right from the box)
Step 3 - Boil your eggs.
