Tips for peeling hard boiled eggs?

arielleeve | Oct 3, 2010 11:09 AM

I am a member of a CSA and so we get all our eggs through that, fresh from the farm. I've read that fresh eggs are harder to peel when hard-boiled, but I've never in my life experienced eggs as difficult to peel as these. No matter how delicate I try to be, I end up peeling off whole chunks of the egg white. I looked up a bunch of tips online but so far nothing has worked: I've tried the trick of cracking the egg on either side and rolling out with your palm, I've tried letting the egg cool completely, and I've tried microwaving the eggs for 30 seconds. I've also tried putting a dash of vinegar in the water while the eggs were cooking. None have solved this problem. Does anyone have any suggestions?
