I have been water glassing eggs allot this year. It's a very old process from the 1880's and has been lost in the 1900's along the way, as many old things have. I have been getting allot of eggs that I am not selling. Too small, odd shaped, very large. Well with the way things have been going I wanted to have eggs during the times my chickens slowed down. So after much research I decided to use the best way that made sense to me, as I always do. I used my well water, and pickling lime. Not pickling salt......an exact amount of water to pickling lime into a glass jar or plastic bucket, food grade without scratches inside. I use fresh eggs, with bloom, not washed, no poop, or soil, or cracks, or feathers. I mix the lime in the water and stir until does not dissolve anymore. There will be allot of lime settled in the bottom with the eggs. Gently place the raw eggs into the container, they say end up, I don't worry about that. You can add eggs every day as you find perfect ones. When jar is filled place good lid on it and make sure it has a good seal. Put it in cool dark place. You can keep them in storage for 2 years, they are raw eggs..... when your chickens are not producing well you can take out what you need and close the water glassed egg jar or bucket back up, wash the eggs that you are going to use very very well and crack them in a bowl and them into the frying pan, They will be fried eggs... When they start out, they are exactly fresh eggs for about 6 or 9 months, Then the white seems to get a little runny, but not much. Then as they get to a year and half you can see the changes in the yolk.The older ones are best used for scrambled eggs or mixing in recipes, or baking. I have 7 half gallon jars and a 5 gallon bucket totally full and another 5 gallon bucket half full now. I probably will fill it tomorrow. 216 eggs in a full 5 gallon bucket and from 18 to 24 eggs in the half gallons.That's over 400 eggs reserved eggs that we can use when I am selling all my fresh eggs. I have enjoyed learning something new that my very own grandmother used to do all the time...I also cook and freeze some and them shrink wrap them, and I mix them up and freeze them raw and then shrink wrap them, I dehydrate them and powderize them. Then shrink wrap them. water glassed eggs going into the jar. water glassed eggs the next day water glassed eggs in full bucket 216 eggs.. water glass eggs full bucket and 4 half gallon jars full cooked egg squares for sandwiches. cooked egg squares shrink wrapped. dehydrated eggs put in a food mill to make a powder dehydrated eggs shrink wrapped. There are 12 eggs in this. Just add water..
