    Admin please move if I've posted in the wrong place :)

    I was wondering after some research about the things I have seen regarding long term egg storage. Other than dehydrating, canning etc it seems improbable buttttt, I have seen a few people (not on here) saying you can coat an egg with oil and it will stay fresh/usable up to 9months.

    Has anyone heard of this?

    I haven't heard that, you can crack and freeze eggs though

    I ran across a post a long time ago on here that linked some studies that were done. You might try searching the site.

    I do remember that eggs coated in anything lasted a shorter duration. The longest lasting ones were kept in a cool place. I believe the ones which lasted the longest and were still edible were around the 6 month time frame. The whites were more watery, they were not spoiled but probably at the age not the best to use for fried or scrambled eggs. Baking would probably be fine.
