Hard-boiled eggs are nothing less than a triple crown: they consist of firm whites; a perfect, smooth peel; and a golden, creamy yolk. So, if you have trouble with separating egg whites from the shells, then here is an amazing trick to easily peel hard-boiled eggs.
What to do:
Avoid placing eggs in cold water and they will eventually come to a boil. Before you drop the eggs in, let the pot fully bubble. Yes, it is a time-consuming process, but trust us, it really works.
Here’s why the ‘hot start’ works:
High heat helps egg whites bond with each other. On the contrary, when you make a ‘cold start,’ egg whites get more time to bond to the shell, which makes peeling really difficult.
