A video showing how to peel hard boiled eggs by blowing them through the shell was shared on Facebook. We were all pretty darn enthusiastic about the video; admitting to one another that we sucked at peeling hard boiled eggs. Of-course, we would rinse the eggs after using the hard boiled egg peeling technique. It’s not suggested in the video, but one assumes that nobody would serve spit on hard boiled eggs. I’m just making sure you know, we assumed it.
Now, because we all know that sometimes the internet fibs. I volunteered to try this tip. Actually, I volunteered Cole. A few things you should know that aren’t mentioned in our videos.
1. These are ORGANIC eggs. Did that make a difference in the results we achieved vs the results in the posted video? I have no idea. I do know that organic eggs shells seem thiner and the chickens are treated better and that makes a difference to me.
2. Make sure the egg is completely hard boiled. The first time we tried peeling an egg this way, we did it off camera, and the egg was not hard boiled enough which meant Cole ended with a hand full of egg yolk. To his credit, he said if I made him a piece of toast, he would eat the rest of the egg pretending it was Eggs Benedict. I made the toast.
3. This tip worked best the one time I forgot to turn on the video camera. Moving on, subsequent tries are below…..
Maybe we will try again with non-organic eggs, boiled for a little less time. . . on the other hand maybe peeling eggs with our fingers works well enough.
