What’s the best way to peel hard-boil eggs? -- Alice K.
Start by poking a hole in the egg shell before cooking the egg (click on this link). The hole pierces the egg’s membrane. After the egg is cooked and then cooled slightly, roll it around on a counter to create a web of cracks. The shell will just slip off. Without the poke, the shell will often stick to the cooked egg.
