I have found the secret to hard boiling eggs perfectly-every time. Many folks tend to overcook their eggs creating that nasty green layer on the outside of the yolk. But one simple tip can fix that. I can't believe something so simple is not so well-known. But here it is.............
Are You Ready..................
Yep, that's right. Steaming your eggs is the secret to great hard boiled eggs-EVERY TIME!
You just need one of these...
I used an electric steamer like the one pictured above. Just place a small amount of water in your pan with the eggs. (I had to use a bit more than 1 cup in the electric steamer.)
Steam for 20 minutes.
Cool immediately. I usually add my eggs to ice and water.
When eggs are cooled, (It only takes 5 or 10 minutes to cool) you are ready to Peel. Even our fresh from the nest eggs peel fairly well, 'cause you know...fresh eggs are a bugger to peel.
I turned these eggs into pickled eggs. Yum!
I made pickled eggs with the beets I pickled this summer.
