Andy, that's the best hint I've heard in a long time!!
"It is true that older eggs peel easier. But you can't go to the store and buy old eggs. You have to plan ahead and buy them a week or so before you need them.
Put a rubber band around the egg
carton(s) and store them in the fridge laying on the side of the carton. Leave them like that until you are ready to cook
. This helps to center the yolk so it won't be up against one side of the shell."
I'll sure do that next time!! What a really great idea!
My formula for perfect hard cooked eggs is this:
Put eggs in a pan with cold water. Bring to the boil, and cover the pan. Turn the flame OFF, and let set for exactly 15 min. Pour off the water, and replace with cold running water as you crack and peel the eggs under the faucet. They will be perfectly cooked and ready to
