Dehydrating Raw Eggs

Updated on December 10, 2015

Getting Started

Wanting to stash some food away for those unexpected emergencies in life? Own chickens and have an over-abundance of eggs currently on hand to keep up with? Feel like saving some money by buying eggs in bulk? Then the following information is for you!

In the article, you will learn all the basic steps needed to dehydrate raw eggs and add them to your food bank for future use... Let's get started!

Items Needed:

A dehydrator with fruit roll-up pads for each tray to be used (or you can use wax paper for this too).

Several dozen eggs (1/2 Dozen per tray of Dehydrator being used).

Cake pan (optional)

Blender.

Mason jars with lids.

Directions:

Crack open and place 1 dozen eggs into a blender or food processor - blend well.

Place plastic dehydrator discs (or the wax paper if you don't have the discs) into each of the trays you will be using.

Pour half of the egg mixture into each tray.

Repeat the steps until all your trays are filled with about a half dozen eggs per tray.

Set the dehydrator to 135 degrees, or the fruit and vegetables setting (depending on your type of dehydrator).

The drying time will vary depending on the power of the dehydrator being used. Mine takes roughly 9 hours to complete - it is VERY important to make sure ALL liquid is gone from your eggs before you continue on to the next step! It's better to OVER dry them than it is to under dry them in this process.

Once COMPLETELY dry, take each tray and turn into the cake pan (if using) for easier working.

To powder the eggs simply dump them back into your blender or food processor (make sure the blender/food processor is COMPLETELY dry on the inside) and blend into a fine powder. This step will only take about a minute or two at the most. Pour the powdered eggs into mason jars and tightly seal with lids. Label (Name and date) and store in a cool dark place. These should be safe to eat for two to five years – possibly longer.

The ratio to re-hydrate the eggs is 2 Tbsp. of powdered egg to 2 Tbsp. of water per each egg needed, whisk and let sit for 10 minutes to reconstitute. Example, a recipe calls for 2 eggs, place 4 Tbsp. powdered egg and 4 Tbsp. water into a mixing bowl and whisk. Let set for 10 minutes to allow the powder to completely soak up all the water and then give one final stir. Use as directed in your recipe.

Summary:

As you can see, the process for Dehydrating Raw Eggs is simple to do and requires very few items, yet will add years of shelf life to your eggs. Whether you are trying to save a few dollars, prepare for the unknown, or are lucky enough to have an over abundance of eggs from your own chickens, following these steps will provide years of ready to use eggs for you and your family to enjoy.
