Why are some hard-cooked eggs difficult to peel?

Hard-cooked eggs may be difficult to peel if they are very fresh. This is because an egg shrinks inside during storage, which pulls the inner membrane away from the inside of the shell. For this reason, a hard-cooked egg will peel more easily if it has been stored for one or two weeks before it is cooked.

After boiling, crackle the shell all over by tapping gently then hold under running water to make peeling easier. Eggs may be harder to peel if they are not cooked long enough.

The Right Way to Boil Eggs (Makes it easier to peel the shell too!)

Bring eggs to room temperature then place the eggs in room temperature water; bring to a boil then turn down to a low boil for 12 minutes. Quickly chill the eggs in ice cold water before peeling.
