At present we are getting at least a dozen chook eggs a day as well as roughly 3 duck eggs. There is only so much quiche and impossible pie you can feed a family! Is there a way you can preserve eggs in the freezer or dehydration? I originally bought the ducks as they were meant to lay when the chooks dont but here in QLD that is not the case and they are all laying at once. I know we are blessed to have so many cackleberries/ bumnuts but I really need to save them for later.
Hi GirlFriday, There is another way to preserve eggs and I think it involves coating them with something
I was told by one of the nurses at work that you can freeze eggs- you just have to pierce the yolk first and they do change consistency but are still ok for baking. Sounds like something I am going to have a go at 🙂
Bobbee- was it vaseline?
Could be GirlFriday, I seem to remember something else that was more a liquid also.
You might be thinking of mineral oil. It is mentioned on many web sites like this one:
Thanks for that link Steve, most interesting.
Powdered egg seems interesting. How long can you safely store it/ Any specific storage instructions?
