Peeling hard boiled eggs
I love hard boiled & deviled eggs but always end up with a mess when the membrane or shells stick to the egg. I’ve tried vinegar, salt, plunging them in ice water etc. All the tips and tricks found on line and still end up with pitted eggs or big chunks missing.
It’s not so bad if your tossing them in a salad but if your taking deviled eggs to a get together you want them to look nice.
Some where on line I read to add baking soda. As you add water to the pan, toss in some baking soda (I used a few tablespoons) and then add your eggs. When they are done plunge in cold water and they peel sooooo easy.
I found 2 drawbacks to this method.
The first is if your eggs crack in the water they may have the soda taste. The second is there are no ugly eggs to snack on!
I wish I could remember which website to credit for this tip as it worked perfect for me. If it was you, please let me know so I can give proper credit!
Another good tip I picked up from Paula is to using your crockpot to cook down your tomato’s while making sauce. Sure saved time needing to babysit a pot on the stove and cooked down wonderfully!
Thanks Paula & I love your blog
