You can also purchase a cherry- or olive-pitting tool at any kitchen supply outlet. Pack into freezer-safe containers with or without sugar. Sugar protects the color and flavor of fruit during storage. To use sugar, sprinkle pitted cherry halves with sugar and allowed to stand 30 minutes in the refrigerator, or until syrup forms. Alternatively, you can immerse the prepared cherries in unsweetened liquid such as water or apple juice, or in a sugar syrup.

To save space, I pour the eggs into an ice cube tray and, once frozen, remove them from the tray and place them in a freezer bag.
The beauty of freezing eggs in smaller amounts, such as in an ice cube tray, is that they thaw quickly and allow me to throw together a really quick meal. I have canned milk for quite a long time and used it with much success; the result is most like the evaporated milk that you can purchase at the grocery store. I was, however, very leery about canning eggs. When I started doing some research, I found some references to them and pieced together some basic instructions for both water bath and pressure canning eggs.
Those instructions warned that the eggs will swell quite a bit while processing and will turn green after sitting on the shelf, and, yes, they do. They turned green while they were canning, much like over-cooked hard-boiled eggs. Eggs can be pickled, which is another option if you have lots of eggs. Here is some basic information about preserving pickled eggs. The instructions below for canning milk are basic and require some canning knowledge to complete:. Canned Milk. New to canning?

You can beat the eggs together and dry them or dry the whites and the yolks separately. Reconstituted eggs can be used the same as fresh eggs. You can even use the dried egg whites to make a nice fluffy meringue! I dried a dozen eggs and blended them into crumbles and they fit into a ounce jar. That would be 4 dozen dehydrated eggs per quart jar.

Great use of space! The only downfall to this method is the amount of heat that the dehydrator puts out.
After my experimentation with all of these different methods to preserve eggs and milk, I will most definitely continue to can my extra milk in jars. However, as soon as I can keep our 2nd fridge free of the overflow, I will start cheese-making again. Dehydrated eggs are my choice for putting those up. You have a reference to using a second refrigerator as a cheese cave. I am a missionary in Tanzania. Cheese is unknown there, mostly. How do you make a refrigerator into a cheese cave?
For instance, I have an inexpensive dorm refrigerator. Please advise. If you want to make cheese the best way is with a wine cooler.. It is warmer than a refrigerator but the temperature is just right for making cheese. Hi, Martha!

Yes, about 55 degrees is a good temp for a lot of cheeses — if you are unable to regulate your refrigerator with the internal controls, you can use an external programmable thermostat to do it for you. How long do you think dehydrated sealed glass jars of eggs would keep? I powder them and then seal them with the canister sealer on my vacuum sealer. Hi there, good question!

If you dehydrate the whites and yolks separately, I have read that the shelf-life of those products is only up to one year. Hi, Kaye, I process the milk just until it builds up to 10 lbs of pressure, then I turn off the heat and let the canner cool naturally. Do you know the recommended shelf life of canned milk? Thanks so much for all of your information!!
What a clever idea! Kid milk replacer is not nearly as good, but canned would be a great substitute! Apparently this method was quite popular in the past. This is the traditional way of keeping eggs. That way you have eggs and salt for survival. Can you use your dehydrator outside? Here in Phoenix we sometimes use our crock pot outside to let it cook all day with out adding any heat to the house during the summer.
To Freeze, Can, or Dehydrate?
Is that possible with the dehydrator too or will it not work properly? Hi, I started using my Excaliber dehydrator out in our garage sometime last year because I ran out of room in the house. She said they do not recommend the units be used outside for this reason. Anyway, I am not SURE this was why it broke, but it makes sense to me and I ended up moving it back inside at her suggestion. I am in KS, and it can be humid… it might be fine in desert regions? I have accidentally frozen eggs in the shell before and they seemed fine when I used them, but they were only frozen for a day or two.
I wonder what would happen if they were put into a zip lock bag and frozen for a month or more. I might try just to see. I have canned milk in the past using the water bath method. And I also canned butter. They kept for almost 10 years. I know these eggs were good for at least a year. Can eggs be dehydrated in a regular oven?
