Rotten eggs really stink! : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

Last February I dipped five eggs in pariffin(sp?) hoping this would keep them from rotting. I had read about this somewhere and thought I'd give it a try. Well, I just opened the margarine tub and they were definately ROTTEN. Oh well, chickens in the garage.

There's one smell worse & that's the yellow cloud following a dog around who found the rotten eggs before you did !

Steve, I read a thread on preserving fresh eggs with KY Jelly (yes, you heard it right) Supposed to keep eggs fresh for a year or more. Spread a thin layer of KY Jelly on dry, unwashed eggs. Return to carton and store in a cool, dark place. I am trying this and if it works plan to do a lot of eggs at the end of the year.

A sailor told me that he routinely stored eggs with a thin coat of petroleum jelly. Haven't tried it myself.

You both have the right idea - coating the eggs for storage but one key peice is missing - they have to be "fresh" eggs, wont work on storebought eggs as they have been through a bleaching process prior to being sold in your local store. (read this on a food storage site recently). See if you can find a source in your area for "fresh" eggs and give it another shot.

Are you right? Biological and chemical warfare no longer present me with fear after the same experience! Chemical accidents no problem. My dog is a weapon.
