How to Peel a Hard Boiled Egg
The boys and I love to eat eggs. I love half boiled eggs but they prefer hard boiled ones. The thing about hard boiled eggs is we need to peel the shell before we can eat them unlike half boiled eggs where I can just crack the top open to eat it. Luckily for me, I’ve never had trouble peeling the shell of hard boiled eggs though some of the people I know can’t freaking do it.
Oh another thing, I also make sure my hard boiled eggs don’t have blue rings over its yolk so what I do is to quickly remove the eggs from the hot boiling water and dip them immediately in cold water. Once the eggs are cool to touch, I’ll crack the shells by gently tapping it on a hard surface (usually the pot). Then I’ll roll the egg in my palm to loosen the shell and finally peel it under running tap water.
I taught the boys to do the same and they have been peeling their own hard boiled eggs for years now. It makes life so much easier for me. Haha.
Always, I repeat ALWAYS teach the kids the way around the kitchen and the house. Teach them to do things themselves so that we do not need pick up after them. We are their parents, not their maid.
