gpeters3 I have to ask why are you even bothering to wash your eggs? Eggs left without washing, with their natural bloom for protection, can be kept for at least 2 to 3 weeks if not longer without refrigeration. I will admit that I refrigerate mine however I don't wash them.
If you have ever had a case of salmonella you would know why i wash them. I dont care if they lose their flavor on the bedpost overnight as long as no one gets sick. My fear is that handling them in the process of cooking may transfer some bacteria ftom the outside of the shell to the food. Call me a worry wart but i had to go by experience with other food products.
With my previous setup the birds roosted in the nests and the eggs had a lot of poop on them but now they stay clean so the danger is reduced considrably. Since there is no debris on them, a quick rinse will be good enough to kill any microbes im sure so that will be my new method til i learn of something better/safer in the never ending search for perfection :-)
