    Default 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.
