    Just an FYI; the older the egg, the easier to peel. Why - I have no idea. Eggs you bring home fresh from the store will sometimes not peel very well at all, but the ones you've had in the fridge, say for a week or so, will peel with no problem. From my own experience, I have found this to be true.

    It has to do with evaporation - the "staler" the egg gets, the more the white has evaporated and pulled away from the shell wall. Egg shells are porous. That is why a really stale egg will float - there is more air inside the shell.

    I do after all, co-host Country Joe's Chicken Show http://CountryJoesChickenShow.com - it is on iTunes, now, too - so technical stuff I can tell you!

    Hey, I tried one trial with two different egg sources in one pan - some a week older than the other one day, but was counting on the stamped shells of 3 of them, not realizing the boiling water would boil off the stamp ink!

    The yolk will get old pretty soon - it'll be a shell of its former self.

    I boiled eggs the other day for some egg salad!! Couldn't stop laughing as I remembered this thread. I wonder how Debbie and Terry are doing and wonder if anyone has heard from them?? I'm sure Debbie would be letting out a belly laugh if she only knew.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!
