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.
- Place the eggs (not more than a dozen)into your steamer.
- Steam for 15 minutes.
- Plunge into cold water until cool enough to handle.
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 foolproof 100% of the time cause, well, life is not 100% foolproof.
So next time you are wanting to use farm fresh eggs in your potato salad or for deviled eggs, fear not; pretty is here!
