No Cracks, Easy Peel, Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Hard boiled eggs and the art of peeling them without messing them up may be a mystery to you. If you love salads, then you probably are no stranger to the struggle of peeling hard boiled eggs. You want them to look appealing on the plate and not have jagged pieces! Peeling eggs is not an issue if you are just doing it for yourself, and we’re just talking about a couple of them for your salad. If they break, well you will eat them anyways. But this becomes a real problem if you, for example, own a restaurant, and you have to deal with more than 20 eggs to peel in a day and they need to look perfect in their presentation.

You will appreciate this tutorial if you’re one of those people who are struggling to get it right. First, get a clean white kitchen towel and a pot where you can place all the eggs. Fold the towel with the eggs inside it and pour water in the pot where you plan to boil them all. Yes, you will have to include the kitchen towel in the boiling process.

Now add about 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in the water. This is the secret on how your eggs can be easily peeled. By using this process, the baking soda is capable of changing the pH level, and that is what will make them easy to peel There you are, no need to struggle with this simple task anymore. We all have to thank chemistry for making this all possible.

In regards to the technique, after you add the baking soda, turn up the heat and make sure that the water is on a rolling boil. That’s right, not just bubbly but rolling. Have the rolling boil for 1 minute then shut it off and leave the eggs in your pan with water and wait for them to cool. This is a handy trick to learn just before Easter and all those eggs you will be boiling and coloring.
