If only I could eat eggs :(

My kids eat lots of boiled eggs though.

WITCH CRAFT !!!! :) Now I have to try this. I'd make pickled eggs by the bucket load, except for the fact that I just HATE peeling all those eggs.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I first came across this, and had to try it for myself.. As I have the egg peeling ability of a toddler.. Thrilled to say this works!!! Hands down my favorite "life hack" I've come across.

You do know that he farts a lot when you give him too many eggs, right ? :D ROFLMFAO !!!!!

I agree, I don't believe what I just watched.

The only reasonable answer is that it was PhotoShop, CGI, or black magic.

Another edge is to use those store bought eggs that have been in storage for weeks. Farm fresh can be impossible at times.

Must try that. And the farm fresh trick is to put the eggs on your counter for 24 hours. Then boil and let cool in running water, then refrigerate for 12 hrs.

I'll be trying this today as i have some boiled spuds left over from supper, time to make potato salad. Oh ya, supper also included a sirlion tip roast and gravy. Harbl's diet would have imploded.

Do the same with garlic. Just put a lid on a small pot, and shake the sh! T out of it.
Skin falls right off.

Or don't store eggs in the fridge at all.

Seems counter(!)-intuitive but they can be stored on the counter.

We started getting farm fresh a couple months back, it takes a little adjustment. The yolks are so perky you have to fry eggs longer to make sure they're cooked through.

Yeah i've been doing that for years. I cut the very tops and bottoms off - throw it in a container and cover it, shake vigorously, take the the now-peeled garlic. No water needed.

I like that egg "peel" method. I think I'll do it that way now. It's way better than my current method.

As for garlic, I've always used the cut-the-root-and-crush-with-knife method. This shake method is way quicker. Granted, I like crushing the garlic anyway, but if you can do a whole head of garlic in 20 seconds, that saves a lot of time!

Hummm.....there has to be a way to automate this process with the use of some type of over engineered machine, that took way too much time and effort to build, made for junk in my garage. I'll be back in a while. :)

I called my wife and told her to try it immediately and it works for real. The garlic trick is awesome, making pickled garlic was pretty horrible because of all the peeling. This is a game changer.

If it could involve a solvent trap it would be hard to beat

I tried it and i won't be changing from my old method. Maybe i shook the glass to hard, my old method works well though. Crack the shell a few places then roll egg between hands a couple of times and the shell comes off easily. takes me no time to do a batch of eggs.

Apparently you have to figure out the right amount of force to shake with. To light it doesn't crack properly, too hard and you bugger it.

It worked on my garlic. I mean with the bowls, not the paint shaker.

So you put the bowls in the paint shaker? Must have been plastic bowls.

There's an entire world of stuff (ok..and maybe a few people's heads) I want to put in a paint shaker someday...you know...just for scientific purposes of course. :)

Well i tried 4 at once in a plastic bowl, no paint shakers handy. Worked good for 3, 1 had to go in the next batch, it was a small bowl. Oh ya, the macaroni salad i made was good as well.

Did you make the salad in the bowl? That seems like a pretty good bowl.

LOL, no i had to use a bigger bowl for the salad cause of all the other stuff in the salad.
