How to Store Eggs Without Refrigeration


1. Brush the oil on the eggshell

It is simple to preserve eggs by oiling. Using a clean brush, apply a thin layer of vegetable oil to the entire surface of the egg. Your eggs will stay fresh for more than a month under normal conditions.

The oil layer acts as a protective film, allowing moisture in the egg to escape through the tiny pores. On the contrary, the bacteria will also not be able to penetrate, hence the eggs will not be spoiled.

2. Use rice husk or sawdust

First, you put a layer of rice husk about 5cm into the bottom of the barrel, then spread the eggs evenly on the surface. One layer of rice husk and then one layer of eggs until the end. Use a piece of cardboard to put on top, and close the lid of the box.

Place the carton of eggs in a cool, dry place to keep for several months. If you don’t have rice husks, you can replace them with sawdust. Check eggs periodically once a month to promptly handle if unfortunately there are damaged eggs.

Using rice husks to wrap eggs also helps to transport eggs more safely. Rice husk creates extremely high smoothness, therefore you will not have to worry about broken eggs.

3. Preserving eggs with newspaper

Use a paper towel to wipe the dirt off the eggshell. Then crumple the newspaper and proceed to wrap each egg. Place eggs in trays, baskets to dry and ventilated in your kitchen.

This method can preserve eggs for 1-2 months.
