How To Peel A Hard Bolied Egg

I always have a hard time picking the shell off a hard boiled egg what with my arthritus! I know there’s several videos on YuTube about blowing them right out of their little shells, but I don’t think I have that much lung power!  I saw a Martha show one day and she had a better idea!
I think the photo tells it better than I can tell you, but here goes:
run your cold, hard boiled eggs under water to get them wet.
Roll them around on your counter top with exuberance to get them all cracked up with out damaging the goods inside.
Pick off the big end with your fingernail. This is likely where the bubble is, so it’ll be easier.
Slip the edge of a teaspoon under the shell and slide.. slide ... slide!

I do something similar to that. But I will try that with the spoon. BTW. I don't think the sausage balls are the reason we are still married after 50 years, I think it is the Ice Queen dress, since I can still wear it.

I have tried many ways to peel and hard-boiled egg and sometimes it works and sometimes not, I think it has a lot to do with the egg too. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

The main most important part is not to have extremely fresh eggs. If they are a few days old, the membrane is easier to peel off the egg.
