Hard Boiled Eggs
- 1 dozen FGF pasture raised eggs (you can use more or less)
- ice bath
- Bring a large pot of water to a full boil. Gently ease the eggs into the boiling water (I use a large serving spoon to ease them in). Boil the eggs for 10 minutes, then turn off the heat and let sit for 2 minutes. While the eggs are sitting, place cold water and ice in a large bowl. Take 6 eggs out at a time and place them in the ice bath. Give them 1 minute or so to cool allowing the egg white to shrink and then peel them immediately. Then repeat as necessary for however many eggs you have.
WHAT IS THE TRICK TO PEEL FRESH HARD BOILED EGGS? An ice water bath! As soon as your hard boiled eggs are done cooking place them in a bowl with a mix of cold water and ice cubes to cool them rapidly. The rapid cooling of the eggs contracts the egg whites, releasing them from the shell making them easier to peel. Check out our blog post all about pasture raised eggs here !
