If you’ve ever tried to hard boil your farm fresh eggs the regular way, you know the cratered and messy half-egg you end up with in the end. For some reason, farm fresh eggs just seem to be more difficult to peel. And the fresher they are, the harder they seem to peel.
In the spring, eggs are in abundance, but you still hate to waste most of the white when it sticks to the shells. We’ve recently picked up a few dozen eggs from a local farmer since our chickens aren’t quite laying yet.
This is the same farm we get our milk, butter, and cream from. If you are wanting to switch to more locally sourced food, make sure to check out this post on Tips For Buying Local Food.
I absolutely love my Instant Pot for making bone broth, yogurt and whole chickens. I’m not sure why it took so long for me to get some whole eggs in there. Now that I’ve tried it, I am totally sold.
Instant Pot hard boiled eggs are just so much easier to make and peel. Eggs make such a great snack or part of a meal and I love how healthy they are. Packed with protein, healthy fats and cholesterol, vitamin A, and so much more.

We currently have next to no cabinet space in our farmhouse kitchen. We plan to change that soon in our upcoming kitchen restoration, but for now they are stuffed full. I try to always put my Instant Pot away between uses, but I find myself dragging it back out of the pantry daily.
Between making whole chickens, broth and yogurt, it was already a staple, but now I’m going to do a batch of eggs a couple of times per week. They are the perfect protein packed snack, healthy, inexpensive and easy. What else could you ask for? I love when I have some made up in the fridge to take for lunch when we go our for a quick outing. Keeps us from spending $60 at a restaurant, and eating a bunch of junk. Five kids means you can’t go anywhere on the cheap!
