:D One more suggestion along the lines of salt in the water. Even with older eggs I had the problem of not an attractive peeling.
When I cook mine, I do add about 1 TB of salt to the water. When they're done, I drain the hot water out and then bang the eggs around inside of the pan to crack the heck out of 'em. Then I add cold water and keep changing the water til the eggs are nice and cool. Don't know if this will work for anyone else but for some reason, it works for me. :P

I am glad I caught this thread. I never seem to be able to peel an egg without big troubles. I want to pickle some eggs.

You are not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.

Yes. The yolk turns greenish and the white is quite tough.

Get your eggs from the market and let them sit in the fridge for at least a week. Follow the directions for hard boiled eggs.....then place the eggs in the fridge for 24 hours before peelin them. Peel them under a stream of lukewarm water from the faucet.
