We have used liquid sodium silicate for storing our eggs as per these instructions: clean fresh (2 week old or less) eggs with damp cloth to remove and big chunks or dirt and debris, but DO NOT WASH them, that destroys the protective membrane. Store in solution of liquid sodium silicate and water. (boiled water, and 11 to 1 ration of water to liquid sodium silicate) We have had great, very long term success, currently our eggs have been stored for 18 months at cellar temp (60-70F). This is the second time we have done this, but the first time, we stored for about 16 months. One other recommendation I would make is to use one of those plastic buckets that have the seal-able, screw on lids instead of an open crock. I believe this helped as it create an even better air barrier. We stored about 10-12 dozen per bucket (It's ok to stack the eggs on top of each other on the bottom) in two 5 gallon buckets. We are finally using up the last of them after moving and not having our own laying hens. The storage liquid is normally pretty cloudy looking, so don't be alarmed with you fish the eggs out and it looks like that. However, it should not stink unless you have had an egg that has gone bad, despite your efforts. When ready to use them, we get about a dozen at a time (the water feels a bit slimy and slippery), take them upstairs, rinse them off and put them in an egg carton, then in the fridge. They end up getting a grayish color to them when they dry. Also, I do not recommend trying to hard boil them after being stored for very long this way, but using them for any other purpose you would use a fresh egg for seems fine. After 12-15 months, the protein in the whites does start to break down and the yokes often break when you crack them open. However, the flavor of them did not seem to be affected, but I would guess that nutritionally, they probably have lost some of the protein content after extended storage periods (12+ months). Best of luck with storing your eggs!

Rating is based on reviews from persons I know personally that use this method of egg storage. I'm still searching for suitable crocks in which to store our many eggs. Definitely purchase this product before it goes out of stock again!

Item was out of stock for a short time, but arrived in a timely fashion as soon as it was received. It is as advertised. I highly recommend this product to keep on hand for emergency use. All preppers that have chickens should have a gallon of this on hand to preserve eggs in case of extended power outage.
