Who knew - add tsp baking soda to the water when hard boiling eggs and the shell will come right off when you peel. This site has instructions for the perfect boiled egg. Why did i find out about this AFTER Easter?
Seriously. I will never boil eggs any other way again. Out of 20 eggs only 1 peeled funky and it was still better than my other attempts at boiling and peeling eggs. I even had eggs that peeled with the entire shell as one piece.
