Delicious Hard "Steamed" Fresh Eggs

Yes, steamed eggs!

Farm fresh eggs, and backyard chicken eggs
as in my 3 hens, are very difficult to peel when boiled.
The eggs were sticking to the shell and the eggs had big chucks wasted.
It was a disappearing egg act!

I have tried boiling, baking and now steamed!

This method I absolutely love and will never boil eggs again.
 I use a very large pot and a metal strainer that fits in the pot.
Hubby took one of the handles off for me so it would fit.
(Do not use stainers that are enamel~like, painted. Paint bubbles.)

Add about 2 inches of water to bottom of the pot.
Bring to a boil. Do not turn down because it needs to boil 
on the bottom of the pot the entire time.
 Add the eggs and strainer to the bottom of pot. 
I steam a dozen at a time.
Cover and let steam for 22-23 minutes.
 Immediately after steaming, 
put eggs in a bowlful of ice water.
Keep the eggs in ice water until eggs are cool. Then peel eggs.
 My heart be still …
perfectly peeled eggs!
I can never resist making a little half sandwich of deviled eggs after the eggs are cooled.

1 egg, diced
1 tablespoon of mayonnaise 
salt & pepper to taste
Mix & enjoy!
