Those of you with chickens and those of you who buy fresh eggs from those with chickens already know that fresh eggs do not peel well.  I think I can help.  This comes from a young farmer friend of mine and we have tested this out over a dozen times.  Ready? Steam your eggs.  Yup.  That’s it.

  1. Place the eggs (not more than a dozen)into your steamer.
  2. Steam for 15 minutes.
  3. Plunge into cold water until cool enough to handle.
  4. Peel.

I am not going to try to tell you how to use a steamer; if you have one then, chances are, you already know how to use it.  Our results have been pretty consistent;  I am not going to say this is fool proof 100% of the time cause, well, life is not 100% fool proof.

So next time you are wanting to use farm fresh eggs in your potato salad or for deviled eggs, fear not; pretty is here!
