The way my grocery delivery works is like this. Every other Monday a volunteer calls to get my order, which is then delivered on Thursday of the same week. Today my order went in.
I have decided, after doing some online research, to try dehydrating eggs. I will post the results of this experiment after I give it a try.
I decided to dehydrate eggs after comparing the price of a #10 can of Augason Farms freeze dried eggs - 72 servings for $69.99 on sale - to purchasing 72 fresh eggs for $18.50. Even figuring in the electricity used to run the dehydrator, it is still much cheaper to do it myself.
With the reports of 'bird flu' causing the slaughter of flocks of chickens, and knowing that the cost of a carton of 18 eggs has gone from under $2 to $4.50 within the last two months, finding a way to preserve eggs has become high on my list of things I need to do.
Dehydrated eggs can be used for scrambled eggs or omelets and for baking. Granted, there will be no more fried eggs, but that is better than no eggs at all.
The way things seem to be headed with food shortages and higher prices, the more we can put back now, the better. Nobody is going to save us. We are on our own.
