Look at me posting two days in a row! I might just make this blogging thing work ; )
Today I am sharing a tip that has revolutionized my life. I no longer live in fear of spending hours peeling eggs, only to end up with patchy, ugly looking eggs. Seriously though, am I the only person who has not heard of this tip and has been a miserable failure at peeling hard-boiled eggs?
It is so simple, but this really does the trick. First, crack the egg all over and carefully start peeling away a little bit of the eggshell. Then, slide a spoon in between the egg and shell, so the bowl of the spoon is cradling the egg. Use that to break the seal between the egg and its shell, and the eggshell will detach easily. As long as the peeling is started correctly (ie. without little bits of the egg white attached to the peel), the spoon will do the rest of the work for you : )
I hope I explained this all clearly! I wanted to take a picture yesterday when I was peeling eggs, but my camera battery was dead, and I don't have a way to get pictures from my phone to my computer (it is just a regular non-smart phone).
