    I've been noticing the same pattern for some time now causing me to ask if someone has changed the way they grade eggs??

    Also was shocked some time back to see what is the price of dried eggs.

    Thanks,

    I'm sorry you're having to buy eggs, I give away 4 or 5 dozen, free range, organic eggs every week. You'd be surprised at the people who prefer store bought eggs, but the ones who like fresh eggs prize them. My eggs range from light brown, light blue, to green and dark brown, and range from small to jumbo. I don't sort them because I give them for free. The ladies at the bank especially enjoy them.

    Oh man, I have one whole shelf designated to freeze dried eggs and still have plenty to share and eat. Freeze dried eggs don't taste any different than fresh eggs from my chickens. Only difference is I like em fried once in a while with a soft yolk but you can't do that I don't think, in a freeze dryer.
    It's funny you asked me because yesterday I was contemplating trying to freeze dry whole eggs without beating them first, just to see if I can. Also thinking of freeze drying some boiled eggs for making salads after rehydrating them. Hummmmm..

    Awesome, it sounds like that freezer has paid for itself.

    Anyone have suggestions for quail eggs? Back before this cold snap I was getting close to a dozen a day we pickled several dozen (a person can only eat so many) the yolk part it's a creamy texture compared to chicken eggs, scrambled some (no noticeable difference) and baked with some ( I used a ratio of 5:1). I'm guessing when the weather turns warmer they'll produce even better now that they've matured.

    Quail the ultimate survival stock......... maybe I'll start a thread.

    Cammie, Have you tried or thought of putting whites on one shelf and the yokes on another?

    Never thought about it because I rarely use just egg whites or just yolks. Only time I use just whites is for marange for pies during the holidays. If it weren't for the yolks, I wouldn't eat eggs. lol, gag! Not a big egg white fan.

    Nope nothing has changed, I've weighed Wal*Mart eggs, they weigh out as large eggs, I just think it's because they made the cartons one size fits all, i.e. the same styro carton is used for large egg, and extra large eggs. Medium eggs are usually sold to restaurants, and nobody complains about 2 eggs over easy...

    BTW the scale I'm using was my G'Mothers, and you can still buy it in Lehmans catalog.
