The freeze dried eggs were ready this morning.
Above is a tray still in the freeze dryer.
This is a tray out waiting to be crumbled into a jar.
Each quart jar contains about two dozen eggs. Here’s a blog post I did back in August, 2018 when we cooked some of the freeze dried eggs. It’s kinda hard to believe I’ve had the freeze dryer almost two years.
These eggs, freeze dried and vacuum sealed should last for years and years. I didn’t put an oxygen absorber on them since they’re vacuum sealed and the air should have been vacuumed out. I’m going to freeze dry more and put them in mylar bags, about six eggs per bag, and I will use oxygen absorbers in those. I’ll give some of those to Chad for taking camping. He’ll be able to open the bag, remove the oxygen absorber, add water, stir it all up in the bag, then dump the eggs into the pan.
