The Google search ‘how to peel an egg without destroying it’ has over 9,250,000 results, so it’s pretty obvious that we all suffer from the same excruciating pain when it comes to peeling eggs.
Some suggest boiling it an exact temperature, letting it sit in the hot water for 13 minutes, then transferring it to an ice-bath for another five minutes, but gurl, ain’t nobody got time for that.
Other methods call for shaking your eggs vigorously in a jar with oil (read: disaster + extra unwanted fat = thank you, next), while another swears by the ‘blowing method’ – whereby you crack the shell at the top and bottom, place your mouth over one end of the egg, and blow with all your might… umm, gross and weird AF?
But say no more because eating disturbingly ugly eggs is a thing of the past now that we’ve found a revolutionary easy way of peeling perfect ones every single time. Guaranteed.
All you need to do is add a ½ teaspoon of baking soda to approximately 4 cups of water in a pot, then boil your eggs like you normally would.
According to Prevention, baking soda does the trick as is raises the pH levels of the eggs, which makes the shell slide right odd.
“Once the egg is cooked, you should be able to peel the shell of in larger pieces, making the process easier and faster,” states Prevention.
Meal prepping just got a whole lot easier.
