Not so Egg-celent Hard Boiled Eggs
I am a vegetarian but not anti dairy. While eggs are an egg-celent source of protein for me, I cannot for the life of me find an easy way to peel a hard boiled egg. I have read about this all over the web and tried everything from salt and oil in the water, cold v. hot water boiling, cold ice baths after boiling, timed boiling and cooling to the minute,peeling under cold running water, and letting the eggs come to room temp first before boiling...NOTHING works! I'm beginning to think it's me. All I want is to be able to make 6 or 7 hard boiled eggs, then put them in the fridge, and grab one when I want, and peel it without any trouble. It is always trouble, and I am frustrated! Help! If you have any ideas, please let me know. Argh!!!!!!!!
