I looked in the fridge tonight and saw 34 eggs staring back at me. Thirty-four. And four more will come tomorrow. I panicked. What does one do with an overabundance of eggs? The same thing I would do with overwhelming garden bounty - freeze them.
A couple of friends and lots of blogs swear by freezing eggs. I spent half an hour cracking, stirring, and labeling. I grouped them in common numbers of eggs we would need - 10 for a casserole, 6-8 for frittatas, and 2-4 for baking and scrambled eggs. I did not add any salt, honey, or sugar to mine, but some people prefer to. (If you do add, be sure to label!) Next time you see a great deal on eggs, stock up and freeze.
P.S. - I'm all about giving some of these guys away. No egg stinginess here. But, I've done a terrible job at keeping up with which day which egg was
laid. For our purposes, I know they're fine, but I wouldn't want to
give them away without knowing they are as fresh as can be. However, I've got a new system and have
ordered some disposable cartons to keep on hand for giving away, so
neighbors - come on over starting next week. I'll be happy to send you
on your way with some fresh eggs.
