Baking soda hard boiled eggs are the easiest to make.
Time to cook some baking soda hard boiled eggs!
*Easy way to peel hard boiled eggs:
Here’s how it works: The egg white part of eggs, also known as the albumen, tends to the shell of fresh eggs after they are cooked. As the egg ages, however, it will not stick quite as much to the shell after cooking. This is why the fresher your egg, the harder it is to peel.
The trick to easy egg shelling: Add 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda to the cold water before boiling the eggs. When the water boils over the eggs, the baking soda will pass through the eggshell causing the egg white to separate from the shell.
So for easy-to-peel hard boiled eggs, the simple trick is to simply add baking soda to the water before boiling and the shell will come out right . Super quick and easy!
