 Do you hate peeling a hard boiled egg? Dislike the pitted and gauged look of the egg when your done? Here's an easy way to get clean looking eggs. This "ible' assumes you know how to make a hard boiled egg.

Step 1: Crack It

First you start by tapping the egg on a hard surface like a countertop or as in this case the side of the sink, make sure you crack each end really well and also around the body

Step 2: Rinse and Peel

Hold the egg under running water, end up and start peeling. The water will get under the membrane and help to cleany remove all the shell. Sorry I forget to take a finished pic

    Seems interesting.

    Does this technique works with an old egg?
    Because these are precisely those with the shell is so close to the pulp, which is difficult to remove. A recently laid egg is not a problem to peel.

     I don't have much access to really fresh eggs, I buy whats at the grocery store and try to use before the expiration date. It's how I always peel eggs when running water is available and 99 out of a 100 times it works but occasionally you may still gouge an egg
