Sometimes fresh eggs can be difficult to peel. Thankfully, there are a few ways to easily hard boil fresh eggs so the shells don’t stick.

One of the best parts of having chickens is all the fresh eggs. Eggs are super versatile and delicious and can be used in so many different ways.

Here are some tips on how to make perfect hard boiled eggs, even with fresh eggs. They peel beautifully and make delicious deviled eggs, egg salad, or potato salad!

How to Hard Boil Fresh Eggs So The Shells Don’t Stick

Last week I wanted to make Russian Carrot Salad from Penniless Parenting. I’m not a huge fan of carrots but I do like them cooked and I DO like potato salad and this reminded me of a potato salad.

My biggest stumbling block was it’s impossible to peel fresh eggs. I didn’t want to BUY eggs when I have a couple dozen just sitting on my kitchen counter. I also didn’t want to wait for my eggs to get old enough to peel easily.

Thankfully google came to my rescue and I had a plethora of recipes to choose from. I steamed my eggs and they all peeled beautifully, and my carrot salad was delicious.

Here’s How To Make Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs:

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil
  • Place a steamer basket with your eggs (or in my case, a metal strainer) over your boiling water
  • Cover
  • Let steam for 20 minutes
  • Remove from heat
  • Cool eggs before peeling.

And that’s it! Hard boiled eggs are awesome in carrot salad, potato salad, quiche, or for deviled eggs.

Whenever I have an excess of eggs I like to hard boil a batch of them to use throughout the week. They are even delicious all by themselves (although I’ve yet to convince my children of this).

If you REALLY have a gluttony of eggs you can hard boil them and add them into your chickens diet to increase their protein, which can be helpful if they are going into a molt.

More Tips For Making Fresh Eggs Easy To Peel!

If steaming isn’t your favorite way to cook your eggs, you can let them age first. An egg left out at room temperature ages quickly.

By three days it’s about as old as the three week old eggs you buy from the store. This means that the membrane has more air between it and the white and thus will not stick to the egg as much.

If you don’t want to wait until your eggs age a bit, make sure to use an ice bath after boiling or steaming. Boil your eggs for 15 minutes or steam them for 20.

As soon as the time is up, remove them from the pot of hot water and place them in a bowl of ice cold water.
