Kymbers from the Canadian Preppers Network asked me to post the How-to For Dehydrate Eggs. And so this post is dedicated to her!
Dean from Az gave me the instructions for drying eggs. Thanks again Dean!
Just scramble the eggs like you would normally. Pull out your fruit roll up trays and pour the eggs onto the tray's. I found mine hold 6 eggs per tray.
Then let them go till they are dry. I wasn't thinking and didn't turn up the temperature from the last time I had used it. I didn't even think about it at the time. It might account for the almost orange tint to them. They looked a little weird.
I remember hearing they should be dry in about 16 hours. It took over 24 hours for them to get done. Like I said, I think I just had the heat a little low. These came out with a tiny bit of "oily" feel but I figured that was probably normal.
I powdered mine in a blender and then placed them in a ziplock baggie. Then I put them in a canning jar and vaccum sealed them.(did I mention I love my FoodSaver... hehe)
One thing I am sure of is that I will be doing more eggs! When SHTF I can see them being very good thing to have in my food storage. They are an excellent source of protein too. I love scrambled eggs. A personal comfort food. Omelets also come to mind. Not to mention the fact that you can used them for baking and such. They will also work for other things that you would like to dredge in egg before cooking.
I am keeping an eye on the ones I have put up now as an experiment. Hey, after no refrigeration, they are still good about two weeks later.
I now see that I have no excuse to have my dehydrator idle. Eggs are cheap here now. I might as well take advantage of that while I still can. I need to find some more trays so I can do more than 1 dozen at a time.
I'm moving into 24/7 mode now!!
