    I've often wondered about storing eggs long term.
    I've hear about freezing and oiling them to make them last, but I never knew how to powder them.
    I ran across this on the internet. Has anyone ever tried to powder their eggs?

    Scramble your eggs in a bowl. Pour them in a sauté pan and cook until done.

    Drain the excess grease for a few minutes on a paper towel.

    Break the eggs into tiny pieces.

    Spread the eggs out onto a baking sheet.

    Dry at 135° F for at least 10 hours.

    Run the eggs through a blender until they form a fine powder.

    Store your powdered eggs either in a heavy plastic bag, or a jar with a tight lid.

    If anything it sound like a good powder supplement for birds who need more protein.

    Let us know how it turns out. [​IMG]

    BTW, ofically, I can't stand powdered eggs.

    But, I wonder if they'd be any better if they start off fresh?

    Also, my oven won't go down to 135º - some safety feature starts it at 170º.
    Any suggestions other than leaving the door part way open (for 10 hours?!)
