Tips For Hard Boiled/Deviled Eggs:

  • When boiling eggs, to keep hard-cooked from cracking add 1 teaspoon of vinegar to the water.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda or a dash of salt to the water while boiling eggs in order to make eggs easier to peel later on.
  • When peeling eggs place the already boiled eggs into a bowl of ice water. This will help make the shells come off easier.
  • Add crab meat to the mixture to kick it up a notch for something different.
  • Eggs that have aged in the refrigerator for a week to ten days can sometimes be easier to peel after you cook them.
  • For a pretty eco-friendly presentation place deviled eggs in a fancy eco-friendly dish to put on display before they are eaten.
  • When peeling eggs tap them on the wider end of their shells. There‚Äôs usually a pocket of air in the direction, therefore it won’t cause the egg to crack with the shell. Simply peel the egg by the membrane.
