Drying your own eggs is quite simple really. There are two ways to do this. Most people who do their own scramble their eggs first and then dry them. I personally don't care for the re-hydrated flavor. Maybe it's just me because I'm pretty picky about my scrambled eggs. I like mine on the softer side of scrambled and cooking them first just doesn't work for me. So I decided to try doing them raw. This method works for me because I can use them for more things than the cooked ones. Including making soft scrambled eggs!
The method is simple. Beat your eggs really well and pour into your fruit roll up trays. My trays will hold 6 eggs each. Turn your dehydrator up to 165 degrees and let them dry until they are done. Mine take an average of 16-18 hours. When they are done they will be hard and all pretty much in one big piece. You have to sort of "pop" them out of the trays. They will be hard and yet a bit "oily" to the touch. Then I put them in the blender (because I don't have a food processor) and powder them up as finely as possible. I store them in glass jars and seal them up with My FoodSaver. A quart jar will hold about 3 1/2 to 4 dozen eggs. I have some that I put up last September and upon checking them today I found they are still good and storing well. To re-hydrate them I use one tablespoon of egg powder to two tablespoons of water. Let them re-hydrate for about 20 minutes and stir well.
You can use them for scrambled eggs, omelets, dredging chicken and other fried foods and baking. When using them for baking you don't need to re-hydrate them. Just add the powdered eggs to your mix.
Some of us aren't able to raise chickens and so this is a great way to add eggs to your food storage. And for half the price of buying them online. When SHTF eggs will be a nice addition to anyone's food storage. Even if you don't have chickens!!
