Peeling A Fresh Egg

Have you ever tried to peel a fresh boiled egg?

I mean a egg that came straight from the chicken into your house, bypassing the grocery store where they may be a month or more old.

Well let me tell you that peeling a fresh egg can be quite challenging because the shell and membrane does not want to separate from the egg.

Quite often they tear apart or big chunks peel off with the shell and it is very frustrating.

Usually this is how they look.

Not a pretty sight, especially for your deviled eggs that you want to look beautiful and delicious.

Well let me save you from the frustration and tell you how to peel a farm fresh egg perfectly.

Instead of boiling your eggs in water, you need to steam them in a steamer for 20 minutes.


That’s it!  That’s the secret to peeling a fresh egg.

I imagine that any type of steamer would work, but I use a stove top steamer.

Steam your eggs then rinse them in cold water and peel away just as you normally would and the shell will come right off the egg.

You’re welcome 🙂

Till next time,
