I do it all the time for camping.Can you freeze eggs and use them later?
Bear semen works pretty good, but good luck getting that.Can't you soak eggs in something to preserve them as well?
My apologies on bringing up an old thread. Have any of you done this? How long can you keep the egg in the freezer?Cannon,
Yes, you can freeze eggs, but not in their shells. Get an old ice cube tray and break an egg into each cube. Stir gently to break up yolk. Try not to stir in any air. Freeze, then pop out and store in a ziploc in the freezer. When ready to use, thaw in the fridge and then use as you would a fresh egg.
I freeze eggs all the time, in ice cube trays as mentioned above. I have stored them safely in the freezer for 5-6 months. Never stored them past that, but I imagine they would still be edible for a few more months. As far as freezer burn, I use ziploc bags inside freezer containers, never was a problem.My apologies on bringing up an old thread. Have any of you done this?

ETA: how do you keep it from freezer burn? Remove as much air as possible from the bag with a straw? Or am I making this harder than it needs to be?
And as long as you don't wash off the protective coating that the hens leave on them. We've kept fresh laid eggs for several months that were stored in a cool, dark environment.Unrefrigerated eggs will last almost as long as refrigerated eggs, as long as they're not exposed to heat or sunlight.
Glad I kept reading UJ, I was gonna add that bit of info, I know of a few ladies who took eggs laid by there own flocks and set them on the counter unwashed for 6 weeks and they were still good or at least most were, we too have free range chix and if it rains then the coating os washed off and that's when the clock really gets to ticking!.. we leave them out until we have several dozen to carton up and just before I headed north we froze about 15 doz... I'm not sure how it worked out but will ask..And as long as you don't wash off the protective coating that the hens leave on them.
