Dear Neighbor,

While most of the neighborhood has an egg deficit, it seems my chicks are first cranking up; short days, cold weather, and all. The girls are not so much late bloomers as they were born late in the season, thus the flurry of pre-winter eggs. Egg storage becomes simple when you use a canning jar; one and a half eggs fit in a quart canning jar.

Once ready to cook,  add a little water or cream and season with salt and pepper and pour into a hot pan. You can also freeze eggs, as I discussed in my Long Term Egg Storage letter.  Little tip: two eggs is 1/3 cup of beat egg, so freeze your eggs while they are plentiful.
