(lime)water glassed eggs


Recommended Posts

Found a recipe for water glassed eggs online. I can't code, so can somebody make such a mod?


" [...] homegrown, unwashed eggs stored in lime water. The lime water fills in all the pores of the egg and encases them in a shell of "glass". Water glassed eggs can last stored at room temperature like this for up to 2 years. This method of preserving raw eggs has been used since the 1800s and was common even into the 1940s and 50s. [...] You cannot use commercial eggs for this because they have all had the protective coating (bloom) washed off the shell and will quickly go bad. [...] When you do use the eggs, be sure to rinse them thoroughly before you crack them or they will taste like lime. [...]
FYI: a gallon size container will store about 40 eggs. Lime is also known as calcium hydroxide. You can buy it in 50 pound bags in the masonry section of the hardware store, or in 1 pound bags in the canning section of the grocery store....often labeled as "pickling lime”. "

so ingame: one barrel (10L) is roughly about 100 eggs?
