    This method is amazing. My brother-in-law at Easter put eggs in the pressure cooker. It was more of a steam bath which worked well. I used the cheap vegetable steamer that you stick in a pot on top of the stove. I brought the water to a boil. Steam the eggs for about 12 minutes. Put them in a cold water bath for about eight minutes. Crack them rolled them under my end. And the shells came off the egg with no problem whatsoever. I give the egg a little rinse to get any tiny pieces of shell off of them I put them on a paper towel to pat them dry. 6 large eggs fine dice half small onion dozen or so capers drained and squeeze out extra moisture chip fine. Fine Chop two small celery stalk with leaves. Two tablespoons sweet relish drained. Use see salt and fresh cracked tricolor pepper. Mix all the chop ingredients. Cut eggs length wise turn and cut again toss in the bowl. Use a S wire type masher and mix all together don’t over mash it. Leave it somewhat chunky. Add at least 2 tablespoons of Hellmann’s mayonnaise. Mix with a spoon. Add more salt or pepper to taste. Using a metal bowl or glass put it in the refrigerator for a few hours to incorporate the flavors. Oh I almost forgot I need at least a tablespoon of plain yellow mustard too. Sometimes I will add a small spoonful of drained horseradish. Anything that has a liquid you should drain it first otherwise your egg salad will be very runny and mushy .

    18 medium eggs, big pot drop-in steamer basket (2 layers of eggs), 18 minutes – perfecto! They’re fresh eggs and I needed them to be easy to peel for Easter. Thank you!
