I put my eggs from the refrigerator into some water in a pan and then bring the water to a boil and turn the fire off. I leave the eggs in the boiling water for about 20 minutes and then pour the hot water off and put cool water over the eggs and let them sit a while in the cool water so that I don't get burned when I peel them. sometimes pieces of egg white adhere to the shell when I peel them. What am I doing wrong? How do I prevent the egg shell from sticking to the egg white? is my method wrong or is something wrong with the eggs that I bought?
Place the egg gently in deep pan, then poor tap water in the pan. Boiling eggs takes from 15 – 20 min. if you want it well done, if you want it less then minmize the duration on the cook, to avoid craking put either 1/2 tea spoon salt or some vinger in the water & it won't crack & won't stick to the shell
You are boiling the eggs the right amount of time and the right way.
Your eggs are too fresh. If you are going to boil the eggs, buy them a week in advance and you will find that they peal easier. as the eggs age, air permeates the shell and comes between the egg whites and the membranes. for baking or scrambling, the fresher the eggs the better. for boiling, use eggs that are at least a week old.
Eight minutes to hard boil large eggs and I think the sticking is just a matter of luck.
You are boiling it way too long. everything else you are doing is fine for the most part. I put them in a pot of cold water and when the water starts boiling I set the timer for 8 minutes and they are done. I don't run them under cold water, so I don't know if that is what is causing yours to stick.
Hope that helps!
put a drops of vinegar on your boiling water (this is a perfect solution for no break eggs)
Bring the water to a boil and then add your eggs
Turn the heat down to simmer and time them for 20 minutes.
Run under cold water until cool.
Peel under running water after you crack and roll the egg on the edge of the sink.
If this doesn't work your eggs are too fresh. Try using eggs that are about a week old.
We cook 3000 eggs every easter without any problems.
You are doing exactly right boiling, turning heat off, etc…
If you want eggs to peel easily, buy them a couple of weeks before you want to boil them. the newer the egg is, the harder it peels.
AFTER YOU BOIL THE EGGS AND COOL THEM OFF BRAKE THE SHELL ON THE BOTTOM AND PEEL A LITTLE BIT OF SHELL OFF THEN DO THE SAME THING ON THE TOP THEN CUP THE EGG IN YOUR HANDS AND BLOW THROUGH THE TOP PART OF THE EGG THE AIR THAT YOU BLOW THROUGH THE EGG WILL SEPARATE THE SHELL FROM THE EGG AND THE SHELL WILL PEEL OFF EASLY. SOMETIMES THE EGG WILL COME OUT IN THE BOTTOM OF YOUR HAND. THE ONLY THING THAT YOU HAVE TO WATCH FOR IS THAT THE EGG IS HARD BOILED.
