Tips For Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs
Hard-boiled eggs themselves are easy to make, however, it’s the peeling off of the shell that people often struggle with. Did you know that there are ways to make the peeling process tremendously easier? These tips will make making deviled eggs more simple than ever!
To make hard-boiled eggs all you need to do is place your eggs in boiling water and let them cook until your desired consistency. If you prefer soft-boiled eggs then you will only want them to boil for 2 to 3 minutes at the most. If you prefer hard-boiled eggs, then you should boil your eggs for 7-11 minutes. It’s important to note that the longer your eggs boil, the dryer they may become on the inside.
Do you have an air fryer? You can hard boil your eggs in there too! Any 1400 to 1700 watt air fryer can do it. While it isn’t recommended to cook a dozen eggs at a time this way, it’s perfect for smaller portions. A popular method is to put your eggs in the air fryer basket and set the temperature anywhere from 250 to 350 degrees. Let your eggs cook for about 15 minutes and see how they turn out. You can always alter the time spent cooking to match your egg preference. All air fryers are different so it may take a bit of trial and error to get it right, but once you do you’re set!
When boiling your water for your eggs add a splash of vinegar to soften the eggshells, a shake or two of salt which helps increase the water temperature as well as make the eggs easier to peel, and some lemon juice. Adding these ingredients to your water will help the shell. Eggs that are older will also peel a bit easier than those with a later expiration date.
