My second experiment with powdered eggs has been a hit.
I know that many people have reservations on using them after talk of what they were like in the last war.
So far I can vouch that they are brilliant.
Little butter in pan.
4 tablespoons egg powder, 12 tablespoons water mixed well together and poured into pan.
You may have to adjust to get a egg like consistency.
This scrambles up exactly like normal eggs do.
Serve on toast.
The taste was exactly like whole eggs and the texture was also the same.
I have been in touch with the manufacturer and they tell me that they are good for 6 months when stored in a cool place but personally I think they would keep for a bit longer than that as they will always err on the side of safety as with all sell by dates.
The way things are at the moment non of us quite know what the situation will be in the future and these would be a great addition to your store cupboard.
Next step will be to try in a fruit cake.
Watch this space.
They definitely look like good scrambled eggs. Even F, who doesn't eat eggs, suddenly wanted scrambled eggs on buttered toast. It's comfort food isn't it? xxx mr TReplyDelete
Wow, that’s really interesting.ReplyDelete
they look just like fresh scrambled eggs, thanks for the report and photos.ReplyDelete
if the power goes out, we could scramble them over a sterno can or in a pan on the grillReplyDelete
They look good.ReplyDelete
Excellent to know! I'll have a look for these in-store here.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the info. I would go with the 6 months... although you are right in that things usually last longer than said as it's the manufacture's safety net. I may have to try this. It actually does look like eggs I've had at restaurants.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Briony, for giving such a good testimony for food storage and dehydrated foods. If more people would do this and "put back" for rough times, life would be a lot easier. Good for you!!! ~Andrea xoxoxoReplyDelete
This is unbelievable to me! Just amazing!! I wonder if all brands are the same?ReplyDelete
Amazing that powdered eggs could come out looking like eggs scrambled from fresh eggs.ReplyDelete
All looking good up to now. Has this product been around for a long time, or is it something they have recently invented? I ask because it is being reported that there will be food shortages coming up in the Autumn. I wondered if someone is planning ahead by creating a market for them in the hope that they will build up a good customer base. We have several people in the village who keep hens, they put eggs out for sale at their gates.ReplyDelete
Hi Ilona, this is the reason I looked into these dried eggs. I was warned some time ago by a friend of ours that there would be shortages and he's almost always right with what he says. I think they have been around for ages but not in the limelight so to speak. Write and ask for a sample, I'm sure they will send you some to try. I am really surprised at how good they are.Delete
My daughter reckons they would be good for fried egg rice so I am going to give it a try. Hope you are staying strong as we are.
Thanks Briony. Fighting fit, ha ha. Those scrambled eggs look like the right texture, I don't like snotty sloppy eggs.Delete
Oh yes, Briony, I do a certain amount of "prepping" so as to be ready if a disaster hits. I must add powdered eggs to the list. But did you know regular eggs can last a year? Yes! They separate very strongly into yolk vs white, but are still good, if you prep them. But I think I would rather the powdered egg!ReplyDelete
my gran used to have huge brown crocks filled with eggs for the winter , think it was isinglass you made it up from sachets and just packed them in , will have to do some research ..lol ..i have the crocks stillReplyDelete
It's interesting to read that they taste the same as fresh eggs. One to bear in mind. ArilxReplyDelete
Have you bought shares in the powdered egg company? Is it by any chance called "Cater Powdered Eggs Ltd"? Is the company's ad. slogan: "For when you can't be arsed to crack an egg"?ReplyDelete
If you remember YP there were no eggs on the shelf last year when the pandemic hit and I don't intend to be caught out again. These will keep for months and will go in my store cupboard.Delete
Brought back memories of breakfasts when I lived in a hall of residence at college! They were fine for breakfast, but many folk turned their noses up at them. A great item to keep in the store cupboard. A lot of people keep hens/ducks and sell eggs, but there may/will come a time when things get so hard that they will keep the eggs for their own use, and there may not always be the commercial foods that are so easy to feed today's hens on. Eggs can be dried successfully in a dehydrator if you have one.ReplyDelete
I'm a bit funny with my scrambled egg, I can't stand sloppy scrambled eggs but the texture here looks fine. Another thumbs up.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the link Briony. I contacted the company and they sent me a huge bag of dried egg powder and another of dried egg white. I intend to try it in all manner of ways.ReplyDelete
