Episode 36: Using and Storing an Abundance of Eggs

Today we are going to take on a topic that many of my fellow homesteaders are having right now: How to use an abundance of eggs. I will share with you how storing food has put us on a much more stable footing as we have navigated my recent professional transition. Plus, there will be a big announcement about Holler Roast at the end of the show that I hope you will like.

Using and Storing an abundance of eggs

Egg storage

  • Unwashed at cool room temperature for 90 days if they are uncracked
  • Washed eggs in the fridge for 30 days (they say)
  • Hard boiled eggs 1 day at a cool room temperature, but they can last longer or go bad sooner after boiled
  • Canning eggs (Pickled)
  • Freezing eggs (water expands)
    • Scrambled
    • Whole in ice cube trays, then in a bag
  • Dehydrating eggs
