Sometimes you find yourself with too many eggs to use before they spoil. Maybe there was a great sale, or your hens have been overly prolific in laying or you bought a dozen forgetting that you already had a couple dozen. Regardless of how it happened, it does happen. What do you do ?
Freezing eggs is really quite simple, but you cannot freeze them in the shell. The best method I have found is to crack them and beat them with a fork or whisk, and then pour them into an ice tray and freeze. When you get ready to use them, two cubes equal one whole egg, just let them thaw naturally in the refrigerator and then use as usual.
Freezing egg whites is the simplest. Just pour them into the ice tray and freeze. One cube equals one white.
Eggs keep in the freezer for up to a year, but I prefer to use mine within 3 or 4 months. I think they taste the same, so freeze eggs a lot because our hens lay alot!
Have a great weekend,
