Let us know that you tried our 4-11-14 method for the perfect, hassle-free boiled egg!
We tested Aunt Carolyn's 4-11-14 method with store bought eggs. Instantly we noticed how much thinner the actual egg shell was. When cracking store bought eggs, pointed end down first, don't hit the end as hard as you would a farm-fresh egg. The store bought egg is more fragile. Gently tap both ends, then apply slight pressure when rolling on counter top. 4-11-14 worked fine on store bought eggs, just be gentle during the process or the egg will not peel properly.
Another thing we noticed was the smell of the store bought boiled egg.
Very strong sulfur smell and the yellow was very light.
Uncle Bill immediately said, "I don't want to eat that thing!"
The egg was fine, but it truly just not the same texture, smell, look, or rich taste as our farm-fresh eggs.
