How to Hard Boil a Farm Fresh Egg and Have it Peel Every Time. I have tried every method out there, and this works perfectly every time with straight out the chicken eggs. No leaving the in the refrigerator to get weeks old before having an egg that will peel.Can you hear me shouting from the roof tops? I’ve finally found a method for hard boiling farm fresh eggs that works every time. The eggs peel with ease, no having to let them get old, and no throwing away half the egg due to sticky shells. I’m so excited that I had to tell you all about it. 

If you remember right I asked everyones opinion on how they hard boil their fresh eggs. I got several suggestions but the only one that worked for me was to STEAM them, and it worked like a charm. I must say I was getting quite discouraged and thought I would never find something that worked, but the hunt is over this recipe (printable below) is a keeper for sure. 

Quilted Mama Hen Block  in 12X12 size from The Farm Girl Vintage Book. I like to use a single quilted block under enamelware pans filled with vegetables on my harvest table.I had to get on the telly right away and tell my Aunt all about steaming the eggs. We’ve both been looking for something that worked, so now she’s going to give it a go. Another thing I noticed by steaming there’s no grey ring around the yolk. 

If you’ve been following me on IG you’ve already seen my 12 inch square Mama Hen Block, it’s from the Farm Girl Vintage book. I’ve been on a sewing and quilting spree right now. I go in spurts with what I like to do and right now it’s all about fabric.

    Wow…I have never heard of steaming eggs!….will have to try this method!…and love your beautiful quilted squares…I have many of them in a drawer waiting to be pieced together into a quilt…those were my quilting days way back when, when I quilted between my son’s naps! Have a great weekend Dawn!

      Shirly me either but it’s the only thing that works for fresh eggs. You should make your quilt squares a winter project and get them together. Maybe have your granddaughter help you. I tough my son to sew and quilt by the time he was 10, he even won first place at the county fair for his quilt.

    Woo hoo, I will be giving this a try very soon. We love boiled and deviled eggs and hate when half the fresh eggs would not peel.
    Chickens are my weakness, probably why I have 25 of them in my back yard so this quilt block is something I want to try soon too. Like you I go in spurts of what I am involved in, right now I have to be busy in the garden getting it ready for winter but I hope to get back to some sewing during the wetter, colder months.

      Pam we have 30 chickens right now and all our extra eggs are bought by a local organic store. Im so glad to be making some money from them. I still need to get my garden cleaned out for winter. I still have tomatoes, watermelon, cantaloupe, and brussels sprouts producing.
