Hard boiling eggs is a very easy to way to prepare them, but knowing an easy way to peel hard boiled eggs is necessary in order to actually enjoy them and not get frustrated in the process!
To make hard-cooked egg shells peel off easily without leaving chips or gouges, use this trick. Before cooking, prick a tiny air hole in the wider end of each egg with a tack or push pin.
After boiling, remove the eggs from the hot water using a slotted spoon and plunge them into icy cold water. Once they are chilled, the shells should peel right off!
