With Easter coming up, I'm sure we are going to have lots of left over hard boiled eggs. How should I store them to keep them for good for as long as possible?

Boiled eggs in the shell will keep in the fridge for a week. Also, as a reminder, be sure to keep the eggs in the fridge. If you take them out, leave them at room temp. no longer than 2 hours. If left out longer they need to be thrown away.
You can also make pickled eggs, if you keep them in the fridge. Sorry, there is not a safe way to can them at home. The commercial industry has special equipment and ingredients to keep them safe.
Here is a link on making pickled eggs with recipes. They will keep for several months.

As an alternative to deviling or pickling them, might I suggest chopping a few into a mix of a can of cream of mushroom soup plus a half can of milk (or something comparable), stir in a package of frozen spinach which has been thawed and squeezed, season with nutmeg. Serve over split and toasted English muffins.

You might suggest this. And I might try this.

once deviled (dressed) I wonder can they be frozen?

I eat 2 eggs every day so I have no problems eating up what we have.



just to add to the recipes from that website: when we made ( and I still do it) the red beet eggs we added chopped greens( spinach usually but also dandelion) to the mixture to let them "pickle" along side the eggs. My dad and I would eat those as a side dish ( mom thought we was nuts lol)

this thread got me thinking and then I checked and you know that not one grocery store around here has eggs on sale for Easter? isn't that odd? there are always eggs on sale for Easter.

you can get all kinds of artificial eggs and even the food coloring to dye eggs with on sale but not the eggs

Genevieve,

Frozen hard-cooked egg whites turn rubbery, not at all desirable for eating.

Fascinating that there are no egg sales this week. Fortunately this year we are loaded with our own girls' brown and blue-green eggs. Going to try natural dyes on some of them.

There was another egg thread up a couple of days ago which I have not been able to relocate. In it someone said that greens such as spinach or dandelion could be added to egg-pickeling juice. I would like to know whether they are to be added raw or are cooked a bit first. Looking forward appreciatively to hearing from you.
