I use the same basic method for my very fresh eggs with just 2 differences: First, I boil mine right from the fridge, and second, instead of adding salt to the water I add a heaping teaspoon of baking soda. They peel like a dream every single time! LOVE eggs from our own chickens!!

Thanks for the tip, Chicken Lady! Now I have another question for you or anybody who might know the answer to this mystery. I have a source for the most delicious double yolk eggs, and they make spectacular deviled eggs. But last time I boiled them, the yolks came right up next to the shells and when I peeled them, the yolks were exposed. Any ideas why or how to prevent this?

Dianafoot, I have heard that if you store the eggs in the carton sideways, the yolks go to the center. I have never tried this, so I don't know if it's true.

Yeah, homegrown eggs are the best aren't they?

No, I don't know. You could try the sideways suggestion and see if it works, eggs lay on their sides in the nest so I'm thinking there might be something to it. Wouldn't hurt to try.

Come to think of it I keep my eggs in a bowl on the kitchen counter and they of course lay sideways. I only put them in the frig for long term storage and I very seldom have any problems with the yolks not being in the center so she's probably right.

I have these on the boil now - but most of mine cracked when I gently put them in, and they were at room temp. Admittedly it is winter so room temp is about 17 Celcius but they were nowhere as cold as from our 4C fridge LOL

I so hope these turn out! I even made ice especially...

Thanks for the tip about turning the eggs sideways. I never had that yolk on the side thing happen before. I think these double-yolk eggs are very fresh (we get them at a local foods produce market) and they have been a bear to peel. But they are spectacularly good, like the eggs I used to get right from the nest when we had chickens. And, oh, my, the deviled eggs they make are much much better than the ones I make from grocery store eggs. I had no idea about the 30-day holding thing...

Chicken Lady Boiling Fresh Eggs

One big thank you for your recipe.

I've had hit and miss with my boiled egg all my long life.

Tried your method with some fresh jumbo eggs and everyone

of them was perfect. Slipped right out of the shells.

I tried "Chicken Lady's" method. Didn't work.

Just tried blowing into the end of the egg after breaking the ends. Didn't work.

Slicing the egg and then scooping worked somewhat, but got a few little pieces of peel in the egg.

I'm buyin' Eggies. THANKS WIFEY!!!!!!


oOPS wrong thread

Do you have to peel the eggs right away or can they be stored in the fridge with the shells on? I boil eggs at my office for the crew and we keep them in the fridge. We'd prefer to peel them as needed. Any advice?

Thanks Chicken Lady!

I just tried the Chicken Lady's method for the first time tonight and every single egg slipped right out of the shell. So quick, and so easy!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
