One of the most frustrating aspects of hard cooking, i.e., hard boiling eggs is peeling them. I crack the eggs and then stand by the sink picking off shells and watching the egg whites disappear. Does this ever happen to you? If it does then you will love this kitchen hack! It’s so easy to do and if you’re like me you’ll never go back to any other way.
The first step is cooking the eggs the right way. I share all the details of steaming eggs in this post so start here.
Be sure to use a sturdy plastic container with a tight-fitting lid for this kitchen hack.
Now that you have cooked your eggs and given them an ice bath here’s how to get them to practically peel themselves.
Drain half of the water off of the eggs.
Put a tight-fitting lid on your container and SHAKE! Shake your container about 20 times. Remove lid and check on the progress being made. If your eggs aren’t cracked enough put your lid back on and shake approximately another 20 times.
I’ve had instances using this method where almost every egg in the container was fully out of its shell.
