I hear that eggs could be stored for months in sauerkraut juice. Anyone know about this?
Did you know that normal raw eggs in the store can legally be up to 7 months old? I start to store mine in October in the bottom drawer of the fridge in October and they are good through March when the hens start laying again. I have failed to see the need for doing these bizarre and possibly dangerous things for storing my eggs. Other people might want/need to take the change however?
The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is the sauerkraut juice is preventing air to get into the egg, but by the same token eggs are porus and the sauerkraut juice will be entering the eggs. Extension doesn't recommend water glassing either.
When I crack my eggs after being in the fridge for awhile , I crack them in a cup/jar, not directly into my food. I have never had a bad one for eating, but I have had an egg in an incubator explode and you really do see green fumes. If there are any blood spots in my eggs (even fresh ones straight from the hen), I toss them to the dog as well. But if I can get 5 months for fresh homegrown eggs out of my fridge, I don't think I will try other methods.
