How To Peel An Egg - The Tim Ferriss Way!
Hard boiled eggs make for a great snack when you are on the go, and are a great source of protein. The main problem - trying to peel them. It takes a lot of time, and sometimes you end up peeling more of the egg than you do the shell. For those who love hard boiled eggs, but could do without all the work peeling them, just follow theses simple, easy steps to peeling hard boiled eggs - The Tim Ferriss Way!
Before boiling your water, add a teaspoon of baking soda. The baking soda will raise the pH of the egg which will make it much easier to remove the shell in the final step.
Slow boil the eggs (medium heat) within about two inches of water. Once they are done, throw in some ice cubes to get the water to cool down quickly.
Tap the egg on one of the ends, and peel off a little bit of the eggshell (roughly about the size of a dime).
Remove a little bit of the eggshell on the other end of your boiled egg
Now the fun part - blow into one of the ends of the egg. The baking soda used in the first step will cause the egg to easily slide right out of the shell. It is just that easy!
