What is the easiest way to peel hard-boiled eggs?

Peeling an egg

Start with eggs that are at least a week old. The fresher the egg, the tougher it is going to be to peel. Once you have finished cooking them, plunge them immediately into ice cold water. Roll gently on the counter, and then the shell should slip off easily. If it is still sticking, peel the eggs under cool running water.
