Tips:

  • For easiest peeling, use eggs that have been in the refrigerator the longest. The less fresh the egg, the easier it is to peel.
  • To peel a hard-cooked egg, crackle the shell all over by tapping the egg on a hard surface, then roll the egg between your hands to loosen the shell. Begin peeling at the large end. Hold the egg under cold running water or dip it in a bowl of water to help remove the shell.
  • Hard-cooked eggs with the shell on and kept in a sealed container will keep for 1 week in the fridge.
  • To determine whether an egg is hard-cooked or raw, spin it! If it spins round and round evenly, it is hard-cooked. If it wobbles while spinning, it is a raw egg.
