Having backyard chickens has been such a blessing, I highly recommend it for everyone, if zoning laws permit!
I was recently talking with some other "farm wives" about the joy of having an unending supply of fresh eggs on hand, but they were telling me how they had to BUY eggs at the grocery store for their hard-boiled egg dishes because fresh eggs can't be peeled. eek! say it isn't so!!
We've always hard-boiled & peeled our fresh eggs, and you CAN too!
Place your fresh eggs in a steam basket/colander over boiling water. (not letting the boiling water touch them!) Let them steam for 20 minutes.
Remove steamer from heat and immerse in icy cold water to stop the cooking process, about 2 minutes. Remove from water.
DO NOT let them soak in the water.
Now gently tap the egg to start a crack and the shell should quite literally slide off your hard boiled egg!
Time to make some deviled eggs!
Do you have chickens in your backyard?
Have you ever considered it?
