Super useful tip!

Check out this crazy egg peeling technique from Tim Ferriss.  I have never seen anything like it! Do any of you do this?

    Cool!  You can do the same thing with a can of refried beans!  (i know, not zoned, but still cool!)

  2. Awesome! Tony and I were just boiling eggs and comparing styles this evening! We’re debating going out to the store to get baking soda right now!

  3. I’m lazy so I just buy the pre-peeled hard-boiled eggs that comes in bags of 6.  I guess with this technique though I could start saving some money smile
