    I've been freezing a lot of eggs for that slow laying period. My question is can you make mayo from previously frozen eggs. I would thaw and bring to room temperature then make the mayo. Has anyone done this before and what were the results. Miss Prissy I hope you have an answer for me in no one else does.
    Thanks, K

    This is an interesting question..I don't have an answer to your question...I didn't know that you could freeze eggs. When you freeze them doesn't the shell crack. I thought you had to throw frozen eggs away!! Input any one? [​IMG]

    chickenchickenbulkbulk - you can freeze eggs and use them later but you take them out of the shell- you can freeze them in say cupcake pans and then pop them out and put them in a ziplock or try ice cube trays.

    I don't know about the mayo?

    Oh!! [​IMG] When the eggs thaw out, do they change as far as there texture? If they don't I would think they would be okay for mayo..wouldn't you? Try it and let us know. I have never made mayo. DeeJay

    After 3 tries, I finally made mayo. I hated wasting all that oil and eggs on the first several batches. My stick blender doesn't whip fast enough so now I use my regular blender. That is why I wondered if anyone has ever made mayo from previously frozen eggs so I don't waste all the ingredients if it doesn't work. DeeJay, You need to add sugar or salt to the yolk to keep it from getting gummy. I have been freezing a lot of eggs to prepare myself for when the hens start moulting or go on strike.[​IMG] You can google 'freezing chicken eggs' and it will give you more info. I guess when the time comes I'll give it a try.

    I bake with the eggs I freeze. Freezing will change the texture but I have no clue about the mayonaise. I always use a fresh egg when I make it.

    Thanks MP, I figured if anyone knew, it would be you. If I get in a deperate situation I may have to try it.
