Save Your Fingers When Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

This Sparked Me!

When peeling a hard boiled egg crack the large end of the egg where the air pocket is. Then slip a spoon in between the shell and the egg with the concave side toward the egg. The spoon goes all around the egg and your fingers don't get poked with sharp pieces of egg shell.

    I steam my eggs so they peel easier and there is no unappetizing green on the yolk.

    I like this idea. I steam my eggs instead of boiling them. The shells come right off. But I'll try the spoon, too.
