Whole Lotta Eggs!

Yep, it's Spring and the girls are in full egg laying production. I have been making all kinds of delicious recipes that use a good amount of eggs, but I was still getting a dozen per day. I found that I could freeze whole eggs, so now I have 6 dz. in our freezer for those times of the year when the girls are molting or the daylight hours just have them slowing down. My method for freezing has me using a muffin tin with the silicone muffin liners. One egg fills one muffin hole perfectly. Just beat it a bit, and pour in. Freeze for about 3 hours, pop out of silicone liner and place in a freezer bag. When ready to use, just thaw out in the refrigerator. Can be used for anything except fried or over-easy eggs. ;) Should last in the freezer for about 1 year.

    Good to know! Our chickens are 4+ years old and have for the most part quit laying altogether. Our new chicks are only 2 months old, so as soon as they start, we can freeze eggs, too.

    I have not frozen eggs before? How is the taste and texture for scrambled eggs? We just tried some freeze dried eggs reconstituted and cooked. They were pretty good. We do tend to make “stuffed” scrambled eggs, so it adds a lot of flavor in.
