Tips on freezing edible eggs to eat later

Did you know that you can freeze the incredible edible egg? If you find yourself having a few extra eggs and don't think you'll eat them within a few weeks of buying them (or if they're on sale and you're stocking up), you can break them out of the shells and freeze them!

Here's how:

  • Egg whites: Break and separate the eggs, one at a time, making sure the yolk doesn't get into the whites. Pour the egg whites into freezer containers (like a standard ice cube tray) and seal tightly.
  • Egg yolks: Yolks can't be frozen on their own because of the gelation property of the yolk. The solution is to beat in either 1/8 teaspoon salt or 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar or corn syrup per 1/4 cup of egg yolks (about 4 yolks). Then pour them into a freezer container and label them with what ingredients you added – just for a helpful reminder!
  • Whole eggs: Beat until just blended and then pour into a freezer container.
  • Hard-boiled eggs: Although hard-boiled egg whites don't freeze well, the yolk part does. Carefully place the yolks in a single layer in a saucepan and add enough water to come at least 1 inch above the yolks. Cover and quickly bring just to boiling. Remove the pan from the heat and let the yolks stand, covered, in the hot water about 12 minutes. Remove the yolks with a slotted spoon, drain them well and package them for freezing.
  • Omelets: Can be frozen for up to 2 months in an airtight container or freezer bag. After thawing in the refrigerator, omelets need to be eaten within 3 days.

According to the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), you can freeze eggs for up to one year.

When you're ready to use frozen eggs, thaw them overnight in the refrigerator or under running cold water.

Another tip: use egg yolks or whole eggs as soon as they're thawed. Thawed egg whites will beat to better volume if you allow them to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Use thawed frozen eggs only in dishes that are thoroughly cooked.

By Jim Chakeres, executive vice president of the Ohio Poultry Association. Ohio ranks number-two in the nation for egg production producing more than 8 billion eggs each year.
