This week, ShopRite’s .99 for 18 (non-oganic) eggs is too good to pass up. So, here I am with 36 eggs in my fridge!
My intent was to freeze one carton of eggs. You can, after all. There are many posts around the Internet about how to do it (crack them a couple/few at a time in a bowl, mix them very gently, add a pinch of salt, put in freezer, defrost in fridge and use for baking or scrambled eggs). In fact, last year, I froze a few egg yolks (when I was on my big kick of eating only egg whites). Since frozen eggs are good for a year, it was safe enough for me to pull them out and defrost them. I did. But, I can’t get myself to USE them! My husband doesn’t want them. And if they are only yolks, it doesn’t make sense to bake with them. They are in my fridge wasting away the past two days. Do I throw them out? Do I use them?
The bottom line is that I probably won’t freeze my ShopRite eggs. I’ll use them up without a problem (omelets) and things I can bake and definitely freeze.
If anyone out there has any experience with the egg-freezing procedure, please let us know. I would like to try it one day with whole eggs, not JUST the yolk!
Addendum: I just found a great post with links to recipes that use egg yolks! I’m going to dive in and make something with my extras.
