Have you ever been apprehensive about making hard-boiled eggs or anything that calls for them because of the dreaded process of peeling the darn things? Well, leave it to The Pioneer Woman and her entourage to solve that problem once and for all!
The Process – so simple, it’s stupid!
Bring on the Heat!
Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil, then gently lower the eggs into the water.
Now that the eggs are in, lower the heat so that the water is at a gentle simmer. You don’t want a full rolling boil, just a gentle amount of bubbles. Cook for 13 minutes.
Chill for a While!
When the eggs are finished cooking, drop the eggs into an ice bath for 5 minutes.
Peel with Ease!
After 5 minutes, the eggs will be cool to the touch. Give them several taps against the countertop all over the egg, then peel away. You’ll get lovely large pieces of shell that come right off. It’s the best.
After peeling, the eggs should be stored in the refrigerator, for up to five days.
