It’s a balmy 97 degrees here in St.Louis this week and who the heck is thinking of winter?! Maybe dreaming, longingly, for colder weather, but certainly not preparing yet… It’s WAY too early for that right? Wrong.
As my fellow gardeners know, the time to preserve the harvest and prepare for winter is now. When the crops are abundant and the quail eggs are rolling in.
By this time, I am knee deep in quail eggs.. We’re talking over 150 in my refrigerator right now… I have been searching for a way to preserve them. I don’t like the idea of forcing my hens to lay in the winter and I can’t keep up right now with their production. So, I decided to give egg cubes a try.
Eggs frozen into ice cube trays. Simple as that.
This was probably the easiest form of preservation that I have yet to encounter. I simply cracked all the eggs into a big bowl, whisked them together and poured them in! Done. The most tedious part was the actual egg cracking. Those things are tiny…
This is a great way to make sure you have eggs throughout the winter that are fresh from your backyard. I am hoping to never have to buy eggs again!
