Are there any sure fire methods for easy peeling?
in my experience, apart from the freshness of the egg (which plays a role,) the slower/more gently you hard cook them, the harder it is to peel them. worst by a long shot was using a sous vide circulator to cook them; 170 degrees for 45 minutes. huge ribbons of the white were peeling away with the shells.
