Pressure Cooker Hard-Boiled Eggs

Recipe by  

"If you happen to raise your own chickens or have access to really fresh eggs, a pressure cooker is the best way to make hard-cooked eggs. It doesn't really save time (the pressure cooker's usual claim to fame), but here's why it's great: it actually makes fresh eggs easy to peel!"

I started boiling eggs in my pressure cooker recently and I love it! For my instant pot, I use the steam setting. Much easier to peel! (although my friend's farm-fresh eggs were still a challenge)

Perfection! I have been looking for a way to make pickled eggs. I have a good pickling recipe, but getting the hard boiled eggs properly cooked and out of the shells was a hassle. Now it is easy as can be.
