If you own chickens you will know that they can produce more eggs than you can eat on a daily basis. Even more so when it’s warmer out.
In the winter they lay less but you can still end up with a lot of eggs sitting around for days or weeks. The benefits of keeping chickens are numerous!
If you have neighbors you can sell them too that’s great but a lot of us can’t sell them or don’t want too. So the next logical step is to try and preserve them so they last months, not weeks.
If you don’t own chickens and you see a great deal at the store you can take advantage of that deal and buy dozen or two and store them.
You can add mineral oil or, to save space and have some variation in your egg storage, you can freeze them.
Learning how to properly freeze fresh eggs will not only give you an extra (and delicious) long-term food supply option, but it can also save you money!
