    I have pickled eggs and refrigerated them. Do they need to be or can they be given a hot water bath for them to be shelf stable?

    I have frozen raw eggs. I know you can freeze scrambled eggs, but can you freeze hard boiled eggs?

    When teaching someone, I operate on the premise of there are no dumb questions.

    If the pickled eggs are in the brine, I would just leave them how they are, the pickling will preserve them.

    To the freezing, never tried to freeze eggs, but I’m sure you can freeze hard boiled eggs it would definitely be worth a try.

    I never do anything with my eggs, I just set them unwashed as they come from the nest into a cardboard egg crate then set several of them into a stackable cardboard box (the ones from the stores where the blueberry/raspberry and such fruit come in) date them and keep them stacked in the basement. They keep like that for at least four months if not longer.

    Wow so many eggs, do not let them go bad and lose them.

    You can freeze eggs also separated, the yolk and white in ice trays for example. And then save them in bags and use as needed, as scrambled eggs also with salt and pepper the same way.
