You may remember my post back in May on preserving eggs. Well today, July 31st, I tested them to find out. I started w/ the oldest eggs. I stored them in the pantry April 14th.
They look like eggs & no foul odor precedes them.
If they all follow this route, they are for being scrambled & for baking purposes. They smell fine. My bowl is a brownish mustard color, really not the best for showing off eggs that might be questionable. I'll try another to be sure...
I was much more gentle in the thumbs w/ this break. Even so, the yolk membrane is not as solid as in a freshly gathered egg. Everyone but Mike likes their eggs fried hard so that is where these are going.
As an update, we went through the whole dozen this day, only 4 came out w/ intact yolks. We might have gotten more, Victor fried 3 of his own eggs for a snack & his thumbs lack finesse. I was holding baby while cracking them for smoothies & wasn't able to focus.
Looking back at the day, how could we make it w/out chickens? My 2 for breakfast V & M had 5 for a snack, 2 in smoothies, 2 for an egg wash to bread supper in & 1 in a loaf of banana bread. None of us are sick after 24 hours so this is a good alternative for storage space/ power outage.
