I just read that adding baking soda to the water makes the eggs easier to peel..  I have not tried it yet.

They turned out great. I prefer the jagged tops.

They are supposed to be boiled first. Did you try that?

The older the eggs, the harder they are to work with.

@Annie actually, older less fresh eggs are preferred for hard boiling due to easier peeling.

 Actually, older eggs are HARDER to peel, fresher eggs are easier to peel

@Linda @Cash Tree @Annie  I fill a dish pan in the sink with water and some ice. Strainer spoon straight from pot to ice water pulls the egg away from shell. I leave them in the water till they're cool. They peel perfectly every time.

Regardless of the age of the egg (provided it's not rotten) I first boil the water then add room temperature egg with the large end pricked (I have an egg pricker for this purpose).  I cook for 5 minutes for a soft boiled egg (good for dipping) and 10 minutes for hard boiled.   I have NEVER had a problem with cooking times or peeling when doing it this way.   

If the eggs are refrigerated, I add another 1/2 minute to the cooking times.

 I have fresh eggs from my free range chickens and have a "devil" of time peeling the boiled eggs..   Do you have a recommendation that makes them easier?
