I have a question about lime water eggs for preserving.. I know everything I seen said do not wash you eggs but is there a way to wash them and maybe coat them in oil or wax then put them in the lime water solution? I am getting a ton of eggs but so many are dirty and I change the bedding!
If they are dirty, I just wipe them with a dry cloth and then into the lime water. If you are very concerned, maybe look into other ways to preserve them, like freezing, coating with oil or ash. There are many options.
They'll store perfectly for several months if you don't wash them. So would it possible to resist washing them before storage, and only wash them before use? Like you don't peel root vegetables or cut off much of the ends before storage. You do that before use.
