If you are raising chickens and end up with way too many eggs, there is no need to let them all go to waste. Just freeze the extras! The taste is basically the same. Plus, the money you save could be enough to cover the difference you might notice in the flavor.
Even if you don’t have chickens, you can sometimes find great deals on eggs at the supermarket. Why not stock up why they are on sale to help you save a little money later? The first thing you need to do is gather your supplies. You are going to need muffin tins or ice cube trays and freezer bags.
All you need to do is to simply crack your eggs in to the tin of your choice. Sometimes I use the muffin tin but I have learned that the ice cube racks work better. I think this boils down to preference and not really function. The choice is up to you. Once you crack the eggs into the tin of your choice all you have to do is place it in the freezer until it becomes rock solid.
Once the eggs have frozen you can pull them from the freezer and actually pop them out of the tins or racks. If you have a hard time getting them out just run some warm water over the backside and they will pop right out. Once you have removed them you simply pop them into a freezer bag and store. They will be able to last for up to a year!
These eggs will work well with any type of cooking you might be doing. You can bake with them and you can even make omelets. They are just as good as fresh eggs.
For those of you that might be interested in separating your eggs, you need to know that once they are frozen they will not separate very well. So you can solve this problem by simply separating them as you crack them. You can freeze the yolks and the whites in separate tins or trays and then store them in their own dedicated bags.
It really isn’t all that hard and I would have to say that I was floored when I learned how well this process works. If you have chickens in your yard, then you are probably already overflowing with eggs. A few layers will produce a high yield over a week’s time. Follow this simple process and you will have all the eggs you need, when you need them.
