Hard to Peel Hard Boiled Eggs

We have been struggling to peel our eggs this winter so we have figured out a few ways to make it easier!  So if you ever tried to boil your farm fresh chicken eggs
and been disappointed about the results, here's some helpful tips to make
those hard to peel fresh eggs a LOT easier...

Have you ever noticed that eggs from the store are almost always easier to peel than fresh laid eggs from your backyard? This is because the store bought eggs are older. As a matter of fact, that date on the side of the carton of eggs is a 30 DAY expiration from the time they're packaged. The older the egg, the easier it is to peel.

First, add your eggs to a pot of water and bring to a boil. Remove pot from heat and allow to sit for 20 minutes (keeping the eggs in the hot water).
Next, remove the eggs from the water (but don't dump the water, you'll need it again) and place in a large bowl of ice. Leave in ice for 5 minutes.
Bring the pot of hot water back to a boil. Once boiling, transfer the eggs from the ice, back into the boiling water. (Boil no more than 6 at a time). Boil for 10 seconds.
Return the eggs to the bowl of ice water. Keep them there until they're fully cooled.

The first one I peeled worked great!  By the way it peeled I am sure the rest will do the same!
