Freezing fresh eggs
This is the time of year when the hens are laying eggs every day---at least one and sometimes two a day, so it's also a good time to save some for those slim winter months when the "girls" don't feel like working. I have been whisking half a dozen at a time and adding 1/2 tsp of salt-----my favorite is Redmond's from Utah that Don and Reed, friends in Boerne, TX introduced me to. I label ziplocks, pour in the whisked eggs, squeeze out as much air as possible and seal and pop into the freezer. They defrost within minutes and make fantastic quiches or omelettes. The eggshells go straight into the garden or the compost pile----no waste!! one of the great things about the pandemic is that interest in home gardening and animal husbandry has exploded, much like it did during the last world war. There's always a silver lining!
