How To Get A Fresh Egg To Peel Beautifully!

Those of you with chickens and those of you who buy fresh eggs from those with chickens peeled eggalready 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 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!
