We have a lot of eggs, a LOT of eggs. The last few weekends we have been hard boiling about a dozen so they could be made into egg salad or just eaten straight from the refrigerator. We have been having one problem with this, they are very hard to peel.
These eggs are fresh, less than 1 week old. After boiling the eggs we plunge them into a bowl of cold water and then move them to the refrigerator. When peeling time comes the shell sticks to the egg and a time consuming battle begins.
Does anyone know any tricks to make peeling fresh eggs easier?

I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
