Step 1: Have a Guess..
Before we get started. Just for Fun. Have a guess! I’ve taken a few photo’s for you to use.
Step 2: Option 1: Count the Eggs..
If they allow you to open it up and count them out, do so! otherwise, you’d best do the next best thing:
Step 3: Option 2: Scale the Container and Contents..
If you know the size of the contents, and the scale of the container, you can do some maths.
Step 4: Option 3: Logic
They had to buy the eggs. A little research shows there is only one way to buy these three types of egg together. a 250g pack.Digging deaper, the number of eggs per smaller pack can be found. Dividing this by the weight of the pack gives 11.5g per egg. 250g/11.5g is 21.73 eggs. Call the 0.73 eggs the weight of the bag itself. 21 eggs per bag.
Step 5: Option 4: Weigh It
If you can accurately gauge the weight, can find the empty weight of the container, and the individual weight of each unit, you can take the total weight, minus the container weight, divide by the unit weight, and get a pretty good estimate!
Step 6: Option 5: the Wisdom of Crowds
As it turns out, the average human is awful at guessing accurately! That is, just by plucking a number out of the air. But… as a collective, we are scarily accurate!
Step 1: Gather Ingredients
Like any good recipe, the first step is to gather all the necessities together.
Step 2: Hard Boil the Eggs
Now that you have gotten all the required materials together, it is time to take the first step.
Begin hard boiling the desired quantity of eggs in the usual manner.
For complete instructions on the art of hard boiling eggs see:
Step 3: Slice Onions
While you wait for the eggs to finish boiling, it is a good time to cut up the onions if you plan to add them to the jar later on.
Note: The best way to cut the onion in order to facilitate later eating is in the "onion peel" shape of the white onion to the left.
Step 4: Drain and Cool Eggs
Once the eggs are hard boiled, drain the hot water off and add them to a bowl of cold water with a few ice cubes in order to cool them.
Step 5: Prepare Brine
While you give the eggs a little while to cool, get the brine started.
To create the brine, mix the vinegar, salt, sugar, pickling spice, and garlic together in a pot. Heat the brine over high heat until it boils, then cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
Step 6: Shell Eggs
Now that you have the brine boiling/simmering, you can go ahead and peel the eggs.
As long as the eggs are cool, the shell should come off. However, there does not seem to be a really good way to get the shells off the eggs without tearing the egg white up. Just be gentle.
Step 7: After Simmering Brine..
With everything else ready, the brine needs to cool.
In the summer the brine takes a little time to cool in the refrigerator or freezer. However, during the winter, cooling doesn’t take long at all.
Once the brine is cool it works best to pour it into a pitcher. It is pretty hard to pour the brine directly from a pot into a mason jar.
Why I Love This Method
Not only do freeze-dried eggs taste just like freshly cracked eggs when reconstituted and scrambled, but they take up very little space, I don’t have to use up valuable freezer real-estate, and they’re also shelf-stable for up to 20+ years!
Why Freeze Dried Eggs?
You may be asking yourself, “If eggs are fine in the refrigerator for 3 months or more, why would I need to worry about preserving them?”
How to Make Freeze Dried Eggs
Freeze-dried eggs couldn’t be easier to make. You do need to have a freeze dryer, and I’m absolutely in love with my Harvest Right Freeze Dryer. I have the medium-sized unit and have been so pleased with the amount of food I’m able to preserve in one batch.
Storing Freeze-Dried Eggs
You can easily crumble the eggs by hand and store them in a mason jar. However, to make measuring your eggs easier when you’re ready to use them, I like to run my eggs through the food processor for a few pulses so everything is powdered very finely.
Reconstituting Freeze Dried Eggs
Reconstituting eggs to use for scrambled eggs and baking couldn’t be easier:
