  • Storing eggs in water

    A friend has told me that eggs can be stored in water to keep them fresh. I am doubtful, what do others think?

    Thanks

    I've never heard of that. I just know you're not supposed to wash them with water, as that takes off the protective layer that the chickens leaves behind.

    I'm doubtful too that storing them in water would do any good.

          Do you think they've got confused with the old methods of water "glass"?

          You can whisk up and freeze in small bags. They aren't great for eating as fresh, omelette etc. but they are fine for cooking, Yorkshire puddings, sponges and I always use them for my Xmas cakes. I store them in 2,3,4s so I can get the correct amount for a recipe!

            It's called glass water and is a solution of isinglass.

            There's a thread on here about it somewhere.

                I think that she has confused water-glass with water. She does come from Malaysia and neither English or French is her first language. She has given me some that I think that I will quietly dispose of to be on the safe side.

                  Actually I'd probably give them to the kids to try

                      We always stored our bantam eggs in water glass (isinglass) when I was growing up. Then my mother would use them for baking.

                        Eggs don't need any help for regular storage, the idea of putting them in a fridge only came about as a marketing gimmick for fridges. Dry stored in the kitchen is fine.

                          Depends on how long you want to keep them?. I haven't got chickens at the moment but when I did I wouldn't ever buy any through the winter when they didnt lay many.
                          I kept around two dozen chickens that's a lot of eggs a day. I froze them fresh, all my baking etc for Xmas cakes were made using frozen eggs.

                            Are you talking about bought eggs or garden laid eggs?
                            Bought eggs are less fresh anyway - and won't stay fresh as long however you store them.
                            Eggs may not need to be refrigerated - but it will extend their usable life. I keep eggs in the fridge as I'm less likely to break them there!
