Full Answer

One way to make easy-to-peel hard-boiled eggs is to place them in a saucepan and cover them with lukewarm water. The next step is to add 2 teaspoons of white vinegar and a pinch of salt. Then, the person preparing the eggs brings the water to a boil for two minutes, removes the pan from the heat, and puts a lid on the pan.
