Hard Boiled Eggs

So how long before a hard boiled egg spoils? Ever? Kept in a refrigerator.

Normally I call my mom with these kind of questions,, How do you bake a potato, how do you cook a turkey, but she is unavailable. You would think as a 41 year old confirmed bachelor I might know these things by now…. But alas I am still a work in progress.

Ok, give me a timeline.

1 week, two weeks ... three? They do last a while - and it also depends on how fresh they were when they were hardboiled.

Personally I gauge the "edibleness" of an aged HB egg by trying to peel it - and DAM - if I can't peel it and it feels dry and - oh just shoot the dam thing out. Yuckies.

Personally 1 week to maybe 9-10 days is a possibility - but that's pushing it. In a Food service point of view - I would not serve HB that have been that long in captivity and not having something done with them ...

But also - when in doubt - throw it out!

During the Victorian Era, the term confirmed bachelor often was used as a euphemism for a gay man and is currently still in use in the United States and Great Britain.[3][4] In spite of the wider acceptance of gay people and same-sex relationships in recent years there are only little changes in this historic usage.

Here's a hard boiled egg tip: When you take them out of the boiling water, place them in ice water for 10 minutes to cool. That way you wont get that gross green border line between the whites and the yolks.

Oh really? Hmmm. I always wondered where that came from.

I personally would only keep a hardboiled egg for three days max.

Why do some eggs have two yolks? One time I got a whole dozen like that.

According to the American Egg Board, you place the egg in cool water, bring to a boil, let it boil for 1 minute, remove from heat and let it stand in the hot water for approximately 10 minutes, then place it in an ice bath or cold water to stop the cooking. If you allow the yolk to get to hot during cooking, it turns gray and gets that sulfur smell.

Not sure on how long they stay good, but probably pretty long, considering they used to keep them in jars and sell them at convenience stores, ice houses, etc.

week or 2 easy in the shell. I think the jarred ones on countertops for seemingly ever were also pickled which helped w/ the shelf life.

Forgot to add that it is best to use eggs that are at least a week old for boiling. They tend to peel easier.

I am finding that the cooking drastically reduces storage life. 3-5 days tops.

Probably not. Not to worry though, you seem pretty straight compared to Chipcom. He is a total nancy.

Keeping stuff in the fridge and it being safe to eat are not the same.
