    If kept in a sealed container in the fridge, how long do you think egg wash will last?

    Egg wash is a beaten egg mixed with a tablespoon of water. I use it on pastries and pie crust to make them golden brown during baking.

    Quote:I wouldn't try to keep it. You have chickens and they lay eggs....don't take the risk. Dump it when you are finished baking for the day.
