How To Store Eggs For Longer Shelf Life

long-term-storage-of-eggs

The following is one way how to store fresh eggs for a long time (longer than you may think); apparently many months without issue.

Christine submitted this post awhile ago, and I’m re-posting for your information and comment – and/or your alternative methods of storing eggs for longer shelf life.

We are a farm so of course we have chickens…

Currently I am using fresh eggs that are from 4 months ago !

How do I do it?

First I bring in my fresh eggs and wash them carefully with antibacterial soap. Then I dry them.

Next I coat them with mineral oil. You can buy it in the pharmacy section of any store, it is sold as a laxative.

I write the date on the carton.

Then I store them in the fridge of my travel trailer, which I have set to the warmest temp to save electricity.

When I bring fresh eggs out to storage, I only use the oldest eggs to cook. First in first out…

I always break my eggs in a cup or a bowl first before I put them in anything because there can be a micro fracture in the shell which you may not see, but is big enough for bacteria to get in the egg and spoil it.

This egg is perfectly fine.

I usually have 1 egg out of 12 that is bad.
