One thing that can be so unsightly about a hard boiled egg is a grey film that is around the yolk. This happens because the egg has been cooked incorrectly – boiled for too long.
I have shared this Quick Tip a couple years back, but I felt in honor of Easter and the many peeps that will be hard boiling lots of eggs the next couple days, I would share this tip again today.
Enter Today’s Quick Tip Friday.
Place the eggs in a large saucepan, cover with water, and add one tablespoon of distilled vinegar. The vinegar will make the eggs easier to peel. Turn heat to high, and bring to a boil, uncovered..
Once the water has come to a rolling boil, turn heat off, and place a cover on the saucepan. Do not move and let sit for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, drain water. If you want to eat the eggs right away, cool in ice bath for a minute or so, then peel. Otherwise, the hard boiled eggs can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 8 days.
No more grey film. Eggsactly!!
Enjoy today’s Quick Tip Friday!
