    How to preserve Fresh Eggs

    I have just stumbled upon a you tube video that shows you how to preserve fresh eggs up to 9 months and they don't have to be refrigerated. Go here to see how this is done--http://cacklehouse.com/farm-fresh-country-eggs.html --scroll down to the you tube movie. Thanks

    I seen the same suggestion on one of the prepper shows. It makes sense, but I haven't tried it because I get fresh eggs daily at the time. It is very good information though. I may try that with a couple dozen to see how it goes. The show I seen suggested they were good for 6 months. Thanks for sharing.[​IMG]

    Thanks for sharing Roosterrod! that's a pretty cool idea. I liked the bucket mouse trap video too. someone had mentioned it to me years ago but I wasn't quite sure how to make it. I just saw a vole hanging out in the chicken run a few days ago. I can put one in the coop at night without worrying about hurting my chickens! [​IMG]

    I have a cousin, lived and traveled on a sailboat for several years, they kept eggs like that. I think they may have used vaseline, but not sure. I remember she said eggs had to be fresh, and not previously refrigerated, dont know how true that is though.

    Love it! Will be doing this in the fall so that I don't have to buy eggs this winter.

    I came to this thread because I searched for "egg preservation" here on BYC. I wanted to share a video my partner found last night. It's AMAZING and I am absolutely going to try this.

    Mind = BLOWN!


    Especially that last one.... Slaked lime AKA Calcium hydroxide. Mixed with water, preserves eggs for 8 months or more with no refrigeration...

    The video I linked to is still good. And it covers exactly how to do this. You'll need some slaked lime. Easy enough to get at a hardware store that has concrete and mortar supplies. That's all you need.
