Choose the right moment to peel the egg

On this point, two opinions diverge. Some people think that it is not necessary to wait for the egg to cool down so that the membranes are soft and still full of water. Others, on the other hand, say that it is necessary to cool the egg quickly so that the flesh retracts and detaches easily from the shell. Both methods are good. It's up to you to choose the one that suits you best!

Tips to help flaking eggs

To make it easier to peel the eggs, you must either salt the water or add baking soda. It is also better to focus on eggs that are 5 days old or older. As the shell is porous, the air has already infiltrated the interior. Keep the eggs very fresh for the other recipes!

To facilitate chipping, our elders say that you have to break the shell at both ends and then roll the egg on a flat surface. So the shell is removed in a jiffy! Others favor the use of the spoon to break the shell and release cooked egg.

And the great trick?

Yes, we were talking about a great trick so here it is. With this technique, it takes a few seconds to flake an egg.

Cook your eggs. Then place them in a closed container. Choose glass or metal containers because the walls must be very rigid. Hermetic plastic boxes are significantly less effective. Shake the container vigorously for 3 to 5 seconds. Open the container and remove the shells from each egg! If all went well, the membrane is removed in one motion and the pieces of shell remain fixed on it. Results: the eggs are perfectly shelled!
