Peel Hard-Boiled Eggs Easily at Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Claridge With These Tips

March 12, 2015

If you really enjoy eating hard-boiled eggs, but peeling them is a whole different story, you would probably use a few pointers. Follow these tips and you'll be peeling your eggs in kitchen at Rittenhouse Claridge in record time:

  1. Cook the egg the right way. This will make it easier to peel. Fill the pot with enough water to cover the egg plus another inch of water. Heat it to a rolling boil, then turn off the heat and cover the pot. Let the egg sit for about 15 minutes.
  2. Run cold water over the egg. Rinse with cold water after you turn off the heat. This will stop the cooking process and make the egg easier to handle.
  3. Crack the egg. Gently tap the cooked egg on the countertop a few times so that it's covered in cracks.
  4. Roll the egg. With the palm of your hand, roll the egg across the counter. This will help the shell to loosen and slide off more easily.
  5. Start at the large end. Identify the larger, wider end of the egg and start to peel at that end. The shell should come off with no problem!
