Frozen Eggs

Stop! Don’t throw them away. In fact consider doing it on purpose.

Twice already this winter I gathered the eggs from the coop and forgot  them somewhere out there in the minus something weather. I get trying to mult-task until my brain starts secretly dropping things of the other end of my list. Its got nothing to do with old age. I probably just have a split-personality-funtionality-disorder….    or something.

Sooner or later I wonder where the egg pail went to. Sooner or later I find it – full of frozen brown gems showing the signs of what looks like earthquake cracks from frost expansion. Believe it or not, I just bring them in and when I’m washing them under the warm water (no soap) the cracks meld back together - temporarily at least. After they’ve thawed I cook them in something as quickly as possible. If you store them in a carton, they will leak and then stick mercilessly to the sides of the carton as they dry. It isn’t worth the fuss after that happens to try to get them out.

Peeling the frozen egg is faster than 3 blinks.

                                                                                                                                        The fun part of cooking this way is that they cook in a round and unusual shape. They look obviously different. I think this could be used by some genius chef to create an egg ‘macmasterpiece’.

Cooking them in the frying-pan.

If you find eggs on sale and have freezer room you could have fun with that.

Every other way leaves either a scrambled or invisible or flat product. This is a whole round egg minus the shell. They cook firm as they thaw.

    You’re funny: “egg macmasterpiece!” So you forgot the eggs in the coup or something eh? Well, your brain was probably freezing. Its been sssooo cold. Makes you appreciate the sunny yellow eggs all the more! I dig that photo, it’s such an eye catcher! I’m sure the eggs would go good in a banana smoothie, in their frozen state! Your lovely eggs can be made into a storable powder. If you would like to know more, I’d be glad to explain!
