Freezing Eggs

    Our hens are egg laying machines.  We have a few hens that will even lay twice a day.  They are just really happy girls and love to lay eggs for us every single day and we really do not have that many hens.  Anyway, we always have an abundance of farm fresh eggs.  We give some away, we sell some, we pickle some and we eat a lot but we still pretty much have eggs coming out of our ears!  What to do, what to do?  Freeze them, that's what!

How to Freeze Eggs

         Freezing eggs is really quite easy.  What we do is take 10 farm, fresh eggs and crack them all into a bowl.  Next, whisk them up really good or use a fork to mix them up like you would do if you were making scrambled eggs.

The eggs all mixed up.

Once they are whipped up good, pour them into a quart sized baggie.  Try to get all the air out of the bag and label it.

10 eggs in the baggie ready to go into the freezer.

We did 4 packages this way for a total of 40 eggs in 4 bags.  We laid the 4 bags flat in a large cake pan and put them into the freezer.  The next day, after they are all frozen completely, you can remove the cake pan and just put the baggies back into your freezer.  
      To defrost a bag, we just put it the refrigerator overnight.  To use, we generally just scramble up the whole bag but if you just want to use a few eggs at a time, 3 T. of mixed egg equal to 1 egg.  It is great to take on camping trips.  Once defrosted, use the eggs within 2-3 days.

  3. Hi Melody! I found you on RLT's site, just wanted to say hi! I live on an off-grid homestead with my husband and four kids in a camper while we prep to build our off-grid house with cash (whew what a mouth full!) We're Christians, homeschoolers, and preppers! I have you on my google reader and look forward to following you. God bless!

    1. Mama, howdy. We lived in a tent for about 4 months while our home was being ready. Love that you are off-grid. How are things going now? We are slowly working on getting this way ourselves. Love that you are Christians and home schoolers too.

  4. What a great idea. I have never heard of freezing eggs before. I don't have chickens but my son does and their hens must be like yours because they have tons of eggs. I am going to share this with them. Thanks for sharing,
    Have a wonderful week,

  7. I usually make quiche and then freeze it. I'll have to try plain old eggs next time since it's more versatile.
    Thanks for sharing at Tuesdays with a Twist!

  8. Awesome! We just bought our very first chicks - we've never raised chickens before. We've heard they're easy to raise but we're so intimidated! Anyway there are only two of us and I didn't know how most folks dealt with an influx of eggs. I had heard you could freeze eggs, and it's perfect timing that I read your post today. Thanks for sharing! (visiting from How-To Tuesday)

    1. They are super easy to raise and we love having fresh eggs and the meat. How are y'all doing now with them?

  9. I live in town and am not allowed to keep chickens, but this would be great for when eggs go on sale. Thanks!
