  • This is what my mother always told me......Dont use fresh eggs.......after you buy them let them sit for a week.......before boiling them. And cool them with cold water.

  • i gently roll them on the counter to break the membrane under the shell. but too hard n the entire thing splits open lol

  • Adding salt to the water when you cook the eggs is supposed to help with peeling. You also need to cool the eggs in ice water. That should make it easier.
