Peeling Fresh Eggs

Spring is here and that means some really great eggs.  Fresh eggs are perfect in every way but one.  They are crazy hard to peel.  It's entirely possible to loose a quarter of your egg white trying to wrestle with the shell of a hard boiled fresh egg.  Here's a great tip Matt showed me a couple years ago when I was making potato salad.  Add a pinch or two of salt to your water before it starts to boil.  Once cooked, run under cool water just enough to make them easier to handle. The shells will come off without a hitch.
