Freezing Excess Eggs

If you are like me during the summer brings a huge excess of eggs, in fact I had 10 dozen in the fridge and another 15 eggs that were just collected from the nest box when we got back from our honeymoon.

So what do you do with all those eggs? Give them away? sure but what happens in the winter when the chickens laying SSSSSSLLLLOOOOOWWWWWSSSSS down? I recommend you freeze those goods now to prepare for later!!!

So here is how I do it:

Step 1: Decide how many eggs you want packed together, I use 2,3 and 6 eggs to a pack

Step 2: Float test your eggs if you have kept them for over 3 weeks, fresh eggs shouldn't need to be float tested

Step 3: Crack your eggs into a dish

Step 4: Mix slowly with a fork trying to not incorporate any air into the eggs but assuring that yolk in mixed into whites

Step 5: Label your bags with how many eggs, and date of freezing- Pour egg mix into bag


Step 6: Squeeze out as much air as you can

Step 7: Lay flat on a cookie sheet and freeze overnight, this allows easy packing!



When ready to use thaw out in fridge and use as normal!
