EGGS

Anything to do with camping, fundamentals, secrets, etc...

Egg whites like Eggbeaters can be frozen and placed in a cooler. They slowly thaw and the carton usually has a screw top (around MD they do). There are even flavored versions (cheese and southwest).

Warning on milk carton style eggs: Some brands taste odd....can't remember which brand it was but it was nasty...had some chemical preservatives in it. Read the listed ingredients to be certain the product you are buying is pure eggs.

I use the carton the eggs come in and trim it as I use them...

And, I ALWAYS put the eggs on top of everything else.. that helps a lot.

come to think of it, I've never had an egg break before its time while camping.

Eggs

Postby queeniejeanne » Tue Aug 03, 2010 3:45 pm

Ann Sailor, it just amazes me how many ways there are to carry eggs. Those folks have had many broken eggs to come up with plans created to not break something until the exactly correct moment. That moment being above a hot skillet.

Since We are the Original owners of Route 66 tear, I will let you hear it from Dennis and I. He likes over easy eggs of the morning. We buy farmed grass fed chicken eggs (twice as big as any you buy in the store) so they don't fit in the little red or yellow or green plastic containers. They come in heavy cardboard paper cartons. Put two hand towels under the carton of eggs put into a zip lock bag. Place in cool chest above veggies and they ride beautifully. You put them into the zip lock bag because if your ice get onto the cartons, the cartons sort of melt into limpville and you will have scrambled eggs when the carton folds up on you.

Well, now that I have scrambled your brain with this info. How you two doing out there?

Thank you, Jeanne

That may be my problem. The eggs may be the wrong size for the container, because we do buy farm eggs. Yes. I have had the paper carton fall apart. Good suggestion. And yes. Chuck, like Dennis, loves his over easy eggs when camping. Even better he loves to cook them.

Two weekends ago we went to the Gilroy Garlic Festival and camped at Coyote Lake. It was very nice.

Next weekend we are going outside of Julian and our friends will be staying in Haylapa. You can find it on the internet. The weekend following we are going to Idyllwild for our first TTT gathering. It is listed under the South West forum. We are really looking forward to that.

I'm sure you don't remember that we have a dirt yard. But, we are remedying that on Thursday. The work will begin. Finally. Full landscape will be drought tolerant.

Thanx Jeanne for the memories; I was raised on a farm and the chickens had a semi-free range area. The eggs were extra large and the yolks were orange; not yellow like store-bought.

It wasn't until after I got married and bought a chicken in a store that I had ever seen fat on a chicken . . . .and had never seen a 2 or 3 pound chicken . . . . . .

Ageless has it right. Pull into the 1st drive that has free range chickens and get a dozen or so. These old gals are out eating everything in sight and the shells are almost hard enough to dent a skillet. Store bought get the absolute minimum of everything and the whimpy eggs are anemic inside and out. I raised mine free range for a couple years and it kinda surprises ya when ya can't crack an egg on the first hit.

Heck, my chickens are in a hen house at home 100 percent of the time. I use the yellow camping cartons and the red ones. they fit the red ones bettor.

I have never broke a egg in the plastic cartons. I have large brown eggs from my chickens and they always fit the camping cartons. I have cowboyed in cow camps and using the old normal paper or cardboard cartons works just as great.

You can put them in the cooler if you like. I have gone for a week or more up at cow camp in the big horns with eggs setting out they never spoil.

they might spoil them store bought eggs as you get them so old when you buy them. I never could chew the store bought eggs. they are about like eating powdered eggs.

eggs are my MAIN DISH when camping. add a can of spam and you never starve. Just your buddys think they are dying eating your eggs and spam.. Hee!

my last name is Eggers. I am have been raised around chickens and selling home grown eggs all my life.

No proplem or hassle to Slowcowboy, when it comes to teardroppin and eggs. I will never starve with a egg along.

My Eggo thoughts, Slowcowboy.

You are right about the toughness of the eggs. I had to show my husband how to give them a harder whack. He wasn't used to that.

Never had much of a problem with egg storage in the cooler except for the recycled cardboard egg cartons, they fall apart when wet. My biggest cooler storage problem was the frozen pie crusts for the crab quiche'..... perhaps a unique camping storage problem. 8)

Steve a small pie taker and a pie pan inside with a large wad of wax paper to keep it from bouncing around and it should arrive intact.

Ol what's her name puts a larger pie pan on each side and tapes them together to sandwich the shell inside so it will arrive safely.
