Come on! There has GOT to be a secret as to how you get the darned shells off of the hardboiled eggs without taking half an hour each, or half of the egg itself!
I am so darned agitated with this problem. I have times when they come off so easily and clean and others when I just shove the darn half-shelled egg back in the fridge and wait till I can cool off enough to try it
I do my eggs the way an old neighbour told me years ago. For really tender eggs she said that you put them in cold water and bring them to a boil and then take them off the stove and let them sit for 20 minutes. After that you run cold water over them for abit and then leave them sit in it for awhile.
I'm happy with these eggs the way they turn out, but have a problem from time to time shelling them.
