add baking soda to water when hard boiling eggs to help shells peel easier

I read on Pinterest that if you add baking soda to the water when hard boiling eggs, it will make the shells easier to peel. I tried it and it really works! I was afraid the dye might not stick to the eggs so I rinsed them after they were done just in case, and the dye worked like normal.

Here’s how I hard-boiled this year’s batch of Easter eggs:

Place 12 eggs in a large pot, then fill with COLD water, until eggs are covered by at least 1-2 inches of water. Add 1/2 tsp. baking soda.

Bring to a ROLLING boil then cover with lid and remove from heat.

Let stand 17 minutes.

Remove eggs with slotted spoon and place in a bowl of ice and cold water for 15-20 minutes. The cold water helps the yolks stay yellow and not make a green ring on the white part. After cooled, rinse to remove any baking soda residue.

Set water aside and after it’s cooled, use for watering plants or your garden since the water has calcium and minerals from the eggs.

Another tip: sprinkle crushed egg shells in garden soil to deter slugs and snails, since they won’t want want to crawl over the sharp edges.

After we dyed our eggs we used them for lunch: Deli-Style Egg Salad

Easter 2013 – We used our dyed eggs for a batch of Deli-Style Egg Salad.

I love egg salad with yellow mustard and onions, both of which are in this version.

The measurements for the mayo, mustard, and onion are approximate, since I mixed everything together to taste. Literally, to taste, ha 😉 I also added a little extra mayo to make it creamier than usual.
