I can't believe I haven't tried this before. I hard boiled four eggs the way I usually do, cooled them off, drained, put the lid back on the pan, and shook it like crazy. All the shells came off in under a minute! Beautiful!

I do it a little differently. Cook, drain, shake then cold water and ice to cool them down. The cold water gets between the egg a bit and the shell and helps peeling.

My wife taught me that method soon after we married. I've been using it ever since. However, with fresh eggs, a day or so from the chicken, it still makes the egg easier to peel, but is not foolproof. With eggs purchased from the store, it works perfectly, every time.

Like other posters, I use the ice cube tray trick, too.

Mostly for stocks, broths, and juice. And every summer I make compound herb butters and freeze in ice cube trays. When frozen, I transferred to little baggies which I labeled.

We have a short growing season for herbs here so it's nice to have strong flavours in the cold months.

I thought I would scrub up and polish this old thread - kinda like the dental hygienist did to my teeth today. I complained that I get little things (blueberry seeds are a real issue) stuck between my crown and the molar to the rear of it (positions 14 and 15, if you know a dental chart). Our water pick died and we have yet to replace it, so all I have is my handy floss. She said to tie a knot into the floss, then use the knot to grab the debris stuck between the teeth. She said it works like a charm. So far I have yet to get something stuck between my teeth to check this hint out. I'm not complaining...

I leave all the egg shell peeling to Pirate. I know he uses the cold water trick, but I don't really pay attention. He has taken over my kitchen. But Christmas is just around the corner. Already the requests from the family are coming in for the Christmas Wreath cakes. The counters in my kitchen are too high for me. So I will be putting all the ingredients, equipment, etc. on the table where I can sit. But I will be needing Pirates help when it comes to oven time.

One of the practices I still will be wanting though is about six or maybe more hard boiled eggs to snack on while I am being busy. God bless that boy of mine. He knows how to make perfect eggs for me. I have yet to ever see the green circle on those eggs he does up for me. Never a bitter egg from him.
