Having your own chickens or ducks will supply you with the freshest eggs you can get. We love having our fresh eggs every morning but we would run into a problem when it came to hard-boiled eggs. The fresher the eggs the harder it would be to peel our hard-boiled eggs. This problem doesn’t exist in most store bought eggs because they have time to age but when you collect them that morning and want perfect hard-boiled eggs that day what do you do? We learned the answer to this question is to steam our eggs. After trying it we will never boil them again. You get perfect hard-boiled eggs every time and never have an issue with peeling them. If you have never tried steaming your eggs before try it and we promise you will not be disappointed.
How To Steam Your Eggs
- Step 1: First you will need to gather your supplies. You will need your eggs of course, a steamer basket, some water, a pot, and finally an ice bath (bowl of ice water) for when they are done.
- Step 2: Fill your pot with approximately a half inch of water. You do not want to put so much water in that it comes through the bottom of the steamer basket.
- Step 3: Turn your burner on a medium-high to high heat. You want it high enough it is producing a strong consistent steam for your eggs.
- Step 4: Place your eggs in in the steamer basket and cover them for 12-15 minutes.
- Step 5: After 12-15 minutes remove the eggs from the steamer basket and place them directly into an ice bath to quickly cool them.
- Step 6: After the eggs are cooled you will be able to easily peel every egg you have no matter how fresh they are.
