FAQ: Hard Boiled Eggs
Hard boiled eggs last for up to 1 week stored in the fridge.
This happens when the egg has been overcooked. It may not look pretty but it’s totally fine to eat. To prevent this from happening, try my method for perfect hard boiled eggs.
Here are 3 tips for easy-to-peel hard boiled eggs. 1) Don’t use super fresh eggs. Farm fresh eggs will be harder to peel than a carton bought from the grocery store. 2) Finish in an ice bath. Immediately placing the eggs in an ice water bath after cooking makes it harder for the whites to stick to the shell. 3) Crack eggs all over. Gently tap all over to crack the shell everywhere and roll on the countertop with the palm of your hand. This will loosen the outer shell for easy removal.
