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.
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.
The square is just the right size for my harvest table. I put it in the middle with an enamel bowl filled with veggies atop. The simplest things just make me smile and the chicken quilt block is one of those things.
