Preserving Eggs Safely

Do you have chicks and enjoy fresh eggs?  If so, are you looking for ways to preserve and utilize your fresh eggs?  There are no safe approved canning methods for eggs.  Two approved methods for preserving eggs are:  pickling, if kept at 40 degrees or lower and freezing raw.  

Pickled eggs are peeled, hard-cooked eggs in a solution consisting basically of vinegar, salt, spices, and perhaps other seasonings.  Pickling solutions are heated to boiling, simmered for 5 minutes, and poured over the peeled eggs.  Egg whites tend to be more tender if a boiling solution is used instead of room temperature solutions. 

Do you have a multi-cooker and never used it?  Come learn what your are missing and learn tips and tricks to safely utilizing it with your favorite recipes.

Plan to participate in this meeting at a location nearest you. Topics and speakers were chosen to benefit feedlot managers, owners, employees, and allied industry.
