You Can Freeze Eggs!
March 23, 2012 - Audra Michelle
When saving money on your grocery bill, it is helpful to stock up on items when they are at their rock bottom prices. Well, with Easter on the way, egg prices are very likely to drop.
But, how in the world are we to stock up on eggs? Will we have to cook a ton and store the food?
You can freeze eggs when properly prepared!
I came across a fantastic tutorial today explaining through pictures exactly how to prepare the eggs to freeze. You can click on the link to the right to see it for yourself.
Let me break it down for you here, though.
You will need:
eggs salt or sugar measuring cup spoon/whisk freezer bags
First, decide how you want to store them - in a larger quantity such as 5 eggs, or individually for cooking and baking purposes? If you choose a larger quantity, you will be measuring by the cup. Individual portions do not need to be measured.
Crack your eggs and combine in a bowl. For individual portions, just use one egg in a bowl. 5 eggs generally equals 1 cup. Add roughly 1/2 teaspoon salt or sugar (salt for savory uses and sugar for baking uses) per cup. This step keeps the eggs from becoming gelatinous after defrosting. For individual eggs, just use a dash of salt/sugar.
Break the yolks and gently mix together to combine eggs and salt/sugar.
Pour into storage bags, label, and freeze! Be sure to write the date on the bag. Frozen eggs are good up to a year. Allow eggs to thaw one day before using.
Did you know that you can freeze eggs in ice cube trays for single egg portions? Simply pour your mixture into ice cube trays, freeze, then transfer into a freezer bag for long term storage.
Did you know you can freeze just the yolk (you still need the salt/sugar) or just the white (no salt/sugar - just mix very gently before freezing)?
I plan to use the ice cube tray method to freeze mine! What about you?
