Instructions
1. Carefully add eggs to boiling water and cook until hard-boiled.
2. Remove cooked eggs from pot and allow to cool.
3. When eggs are cool to the touch, add one egg to the glass jar, and fill the jar just enough to completely submerge the egg.
4. Tightly screw the lid on the jar, and then shake the jar vigorously. The eggshell will crack, and the swirling water will remove the peel.
