Can Raw Eggs Be Frozen?: Q&A


Question:

I am a Boy Scout leader, and I was told by several people that we can preserve the life of eggs by freezing them, is this true? We do a lot of camping and we struggle with the food excesses when we plan on a certain number then campers donít show up for one reason or another. I am trying to find ways to save money and save food until the next camping trip. Is that possible? Most of the items are freezable. But I donít know what to do with eggs.

Answer:

You should not freeze eggs in the shell. The shells will crack. A mess will be the result. Raw yolks will turn somewhat gelatinous when frozen, mix them with a touch of salt or sugar to prevent this. Egg whites freeze well unless they are cooked first. You can crack the eggs, mix them together, and add a dash of salt per egg and freeze. In this form they should be useable for about a year. You may wish to experiment with this a bit to see if you like the results. The quality of the eggs, even scrambled will be somewhat diminished. To thaw, keep the eggs in the refrigerator for a day or so.
