Boiled eggs

Recommended Posts

I was surprised that my hen's delicious fresh eggs make lousy hard boiled eggs for salads! They don't peel very well and I lose half the white to the shell.

Is this something everyone experiences or can I suddenly not boil an egg???! :?

Do I have to leave some eggs get really old before I boil them to solve the problem?

I found exactly the same thing when I boiled an egg for my son the other day. I stood there trying to peel off the shell but taking lumps of white with it in the process. To make matters worse it was the first white shelled egg I've ever cooked - I couldn't make out where I'd taken off the shell and where I hadn't!
