I bought this last year at the Macey’s Food Storage/Emergency Preparedness sale. I thought I’d experiment with these eggs a couple of months ago and voila! They are great in baking. You can not taste a difference, in fact if you have eaten anything baked at my house since November you’ve eaten them! Don’t be scared by dehydrated eggs, if you currently have any mix in your pantry where you only need to add water then you are already using dehydrated eggs (also probably along with powdered milk…but that is another post)
ESSENTIAL BENEFITS OF POWDERED EGGS IN YOUR FOOD STORAGE
1. Never run out of eggs again! The cans come with an equivalent of 226 eggs (18 dozen) in them.
2. They are cheap-Maceys (Utah food store) will usually have these on sale once a year in their “Preparedness” sale. Last year they were 1/2 off (price then was $18.00) and only $9.00 which makes a “dozen” of these eggs only 48 cents. The price currently at Macey’s for these is $22.50 making a “dozen” of these eggs only $1.19…which is still MUCH cheaper than a dozen of real eggs.
3. Very EASY to use. The conversion is 1 T. egg powder to 2 T. water. (Remember that there are 16 T. in 1 C. to make multiple egg conversion easier) When baking you do not need to re-hydrate the eggs before adding to your mix, simply add the needed egg powder and needed water to your mix and proceed as your recipe outlines!
4. My other FAVORITE thing about them is that you can make a 1/2 egg with out the mess. Translation: halfing recipes calling for an odd number of eggs just got a whole lot easier!
