At the height of summer, when the chickens are laying well and providing an abundance of eggs, I often find that we have way too many eggs hanging around waiting to be eaten.
Now, we have friends and family who will take a dozen here and there, and we have one friend who purchases a few dozen every few weeks, but with 15 layers, we just can’t seem to keep up!
So, what’s an urban farmer to do? Well, more often than not, when there’s just so many excess eggs we just can’t keep up without going crazy, I crack them into a bowl, beat ’em up, pour them into ice cube trays and freeze them for cooking and baking with during the cold months when there are never enough eggs to keep our bellies full!
Super easy, super quick, zero waste.
Now, if you’re not quite at the point of needing to freeze the mountain of eggs you are slowly collecting, these posts might help inspire you to make something beyond scrambled, fried or deviled eggs:
