Our farm eggs are always super fresh. We gather daily and sell out every weekend, so you know your eggs are less than a week old. Store bought eggs, probably not.
But, have you tried hard boiling super fresh eggs? They don’t tend to peel very well. It’s frustrating, really. Store eggs usually peel easily. Did you know the older the egg, the easier to peel?
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to hold onto my eggs until they get old and then cook them. No thanks. This recipe for hard boiled eggs has worked wonders for our fresh eggs.
Matt and I like our eggs just like this picture shows. If you prefer your eggs cooked a bit more, try adding a minute or two to the cooking time.
Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs
- Bring a pot of water to a boil.
- Add your eggs and boil for 10 minutes.
- Immediately remove eggs and place in an ice bath until cool to the touch. I usually leave them 10-15 minutes.
- Move to a container in your fridge and let set for 45 minutes before peeling.
