the trick of cracking the egg and soaking, is something I'VE never done. I'm soo going to do that from now on. I've always fussed and fussed on peeling. TY this totally helps!


I tried the soaking. It worked!

There really is no need to cover eggs with water when boiling. Just cover the bottom of pot with water,bring to a boil,turn off burner and time for 8 minutes. Perfection!
