    It doesn't much matter how you boil an old egg. They peel pretty well, no matter what. The trick is to grab an egg from under the hen, boil it and have it peel perfectly.

    Here's how you do it.

    Put enough water in the pan to cover the eggs. Bring the water to a boil. Add the eggs, gently. There is less chance they will crack if they are at room temperature. Boil 13 to 15 mins for large eggs. Start timing from when you put the eggs in, not when the water reboils. When they are done, drain and add cold water. When they have cooled, they will peel perfectly.

    I stopped having trouble peeling boiled eggs (even hen fresh) since I started adding a handfull of salt to the water. Saw this on a cooking show and it works every time. use lots of salt and not just a sprinkle.

    I do this as well, even with our hen's fresh eggs, and it (nearly) always works!

    I have used this same method for years. My Mom taught this to me. It works every time!

    I have always added vinegar to the water with mixed results on the peeling. Never thought of salt or baking soda, off to the store I go, I abso lutely hate beat up eggs after peeling them.
