I've watched this a couple of times so far.  Great info about pickling eggs!  I have frozen them since the chickens don't lay in extreme temperatures.  This ups my game!

We love pickled eggs, they have been a staple since childhood.

Here's a video from Townsends about some other methods.


Townsends also sells reprints of ancient cook/food management books like the Lady's Assistant from 1775 that detail pre-refrigeration food preservation techniques. The ones we have tried have worked really well.

Waterglassing eggs seems to be the top method.

I love eggs!  Multiple ways to preserve them is my goal.  I use eggs all year long and want them available without having to go to the store.
Thank you for the video!

I tried the hydrated/slaked lime method this year for the first time.
We processed our layer hens the Saturday before Thanksgiving and still have eggs in the pantry!
10/10 will do again!

We lime watered our eggs in the fall/winter of 22. Sadly half were cooked in our house fire but the ones we ate prior to that were great. A little runnier than normal but smell, taste was fine.  We started eating them around four months after glassing. Last year my mind was not in the prepping mindset so a lot went undone but now we're back at it,
definitely plan to do that this year.

I think there's a video of someone who did the lime method and the eggs kept for a year!
