Did you know you could dehydrate eggs?
It’s a great way to have them for long term storage, camping and even bug out bags! Today, I am going to show you how.
First off, why would I dehydrate eggs even though I have backyard chickens? Well, there are times when the girls aren’t laying as well, such as going through a molt or during the extreme heat of summer, or the shorter days of winter. Having some long term storage of eggs to bake with is a comforting feeling to have. Trust me. And, for those who do NOT have backyard chickens, you can easily stock up on eggs when they are on sale, dehydrate and be able to use them anytime, saving you money. (win-win)
I started with 3 1/2 dozen eggs, a combination of chicken and duck.
Store the powered eggs in a covered container for up to a year. If you use a vacuum sealer, they will store much longer. To use, add 1 Tablespoon eggs to the dry ingredients in a recipe, and 1/4 cup additional water to the wet.
