We don't often think about egg's having a season, but they do – and this video is all about preserving eggs! When the days grow longer and warmer and all the little bugs come out of their winter slumber, free range eggs are at their very best.
This year, I'm on a mission to not let one egg go to waste. I'm doing this by making sure that I stay on top of preserving them as they come in by the dozens. There's a lot of ways we go about preserving eggs, but here's how I'm going about it this year.
The freezer-dryer I use in the video (and the best investment we've made in preserving our harvests by a long shot!): https://bit.ly/3mzls0v
Would love to hear how you preserve YOUR eggs!
We just freeze dried raw egg for the first time and packed it out in ziploc bags to try soon. Worst idea ever – soon wasn’t soon enough and the smell was awful. We will take another go at this but goodness gracious it was not a success the first time.
Ziploc bags aren’t the best to store freeze dried foods in. They let in light and air and moisture. Put in a glass jar and vacuum seal or Mylar bags
I’m curious, and I hope this isn’t a dumb question. Once it’s freeze dried, how long is that jar good for?
Dear Shaye, I pray you are able to help me. I was reading your book “Welcome to the Farm” and in the back is a story about Quinn a homestead and market gardener from Ohio. And she said “eating alongside the seasons seems to come naturally with this lifestyle” I was hoping I could find her blog or something in how to eat with the seasons. if you have advice or books or blogs recommendation on eating seasonal instead of prepping? Thank you so much in advance for any and all your help!
Quinn? That is probably Reformation Acres.
It would be so nice to see your videos on another platform. For those of us out there that no longer use YT. 🙂
I don’t have chickens. My neighbor does. He doesn’t have a freeze dryer but I do. When he is over run by eggs he brings them to me and I freeze dry them and split them with him. I always put my trays in the freezer and pour the eggs onto the trays in the freezer. I also do not bother scrambling them before drying them. I figure I am going to scramble them in the ninja when I take them dry off of the trays and dry them. I would never fill my trays upstairs and then take them to the basement to dry them. I always fill the trays to the brim with eggs. What is the point in scrambling them twice?
