How To Preserve Fresh Eggs For Up To 9 Months

You can save eggs all through the fall and then you will have them for all of the holiday baking we do. Our Half Acre Homestead shows us how to use oil to preserve the eggs. She also keeps hers eggs in a spare fridge which keeps them cold and can add even longer storage time. As long as you keep them cool once you have given them the oil treatment they should stay good for months which is really nice for the winter when you hens pretty much quit laying. If you only want to preserve eggs for baking and scrambled eggs you can also freeze them.

To do this all you need to do is break all the eggs into a bowl and mix to combine egg white and egg yolk. Then pour the egg into ice cube trays and freeze, once frozen pop them out of the ice cube trays and put them in a ziplock freezer bag and store in the freezer. Each frozen egg cube equals one egg for scrambling or baking. You can also freeze whites and yolks separately if you think you will need them this way. using these two methods of preserving eggs you should never need to throw away another egg.
