How To Freeze Fresh Eggs

Well I'm sure you've said that more than once, we all have, and now here's a trick that's going to make you say it again because you're going to learn how to freeze fresh eggs. At first you might be thinking this sounds a bit odd. Admittedly, I was certainly taken aback when I first read the article too. You know very well how to freeze a variety of foods I'm sure. You know the usual like veggies, and fruit that you want to save past summer. Or meats that would otherwise go bad. Maybe even milk, herbs in oil, sauces... the list goes on !

But despite the wide range of goods that can be preserved far past their expiry thanks to some icy goodness, I'm sure it will come as a surprise to most people that you can actually freeze fresh eggs too. Now some of you may be a bit weary and even confused about why you should freeze fresh eggs. While if you've ever lived on a farm, you know exactly why this is such a brilliant idea. In the heat of the summer our happy little hens lay eggs like there's no tomorrow. Each morning you get to have the wonderful delight of collecting those golden gifts.

But then winter rolls around. Most people end up killing their chickens before the onset of those dreary months. Since it's so expensive to keep and feed those happy hens in the winter months, it makes the most sense to get rid of them. Then again, some people keep them but then they rarely lay any eggs because most of their energy is going towards keeping those tail feathers warm.
