Now I'll be afraid to eat anything with hard boiled eggs in it that I did not make myself. You never know who thinks its a great idea to spit all over them. NASTY!

Call it what you like. It's an unsanitary way to peel an egg. I can't imagine any health department approving of that method for use in serving the public.

I tried this yesterday first with older eggs and with very fresh eggs. The older eggs worked like a charm. the fresher eggs did not work at all.

That was my suspicion. Thanks for doing the experiment and reporting the results.

No matter what I do - I have the worst luck. Nothing ever works for me.

I'm gonna try that!!
My method is - hard boil, dunk in very cold water, whack all over with the back of a spoon, crunch in hand and peel. dunking now and again in the cold water. Works.
But just for the hell of it...COPD notwithstanding.... I will try to blow them!!:)))

Andy, have you got any idea what goes on in most restaurants? If you did, you wouldn't eat out, if this is the way you feel:)
Grandson who is a chef and has his own restaurant, says he only eats out in spots where he knows the chef personally and knows how he runs his operation.
And anyway... we need other people's germs so that we can keep up our immunity factors. So. be not afraid
