Eggs, eggs everywhere!
For one reason or another,
nothing that we can explain,
the chickens are in overdrive mode right now.
Molting and laying like there's no tomorrow.
My husband wants to start selling eggs,
which might be a good idea if it wasn't going into winter.
Normally we won't have many eggs when it gets colder
I remembered seeing how to freeze eggs here.
He washed them and he cracked them open
(no easy task with these rock hard Buff shells!)
filled a 4 cup measuring cup
added some salt and whipped them up a bit in the KitchenAid.
( 2 tsp for every 4 cups)
Then he poured them into ice trays.
(whites and yolks together)
They are completely frozen but a little tacky to the touch.
I'll put them in double layered freezer bags
and break out what I need.
I understand 2 cubes equal one whole egg.
It can be a little tricky getting them out of the trays.
Just put a little warm water on the back side of the tray,
give it a minute or so and then twist the tray,
like you would for regular ice.
Turn the tray upside down on top of a cookie sheet.
Most cubes will fall out and if not,
a little nudge with a knife will help pop them right out.
I hope this works out well because I have eggs for breakfast daily.
Then we always have some on hand when the chicks take a break.
