(Eggs) - (The International Jewish Cook Book)

In the early spring or fall when eggs are plentiful and at their best,
pack them away for future use. Use strictly fresh eggs with perfect
shells (no cracks). Buy water glass at drugstore. Use ten parts water to
one of water glass. Boil water, when cool add water glass and beat well.
Use an earthen jar or crock, pack in rows and pour over the liquid
mixture to cover well. Place old plate over eggs in crock to keep them
under water. Put cover on jar and keep in cool place. More eggs may be
added at any time if well covered with the liquid mixture.
For fifteen dozen eggs use one quart water glass.

To preserve eggs it is only necessary to close the pores of the
shells. This may be done by dipping them in melted paraffine, or
packing them in salt, small ends down; or pack them in a keg and cover
them with brine; or pack them in a keg, small ends down and cover them
with lime water; this not only protects them from the air, but acts as
a germicide.
Eggs should not be packed for winter use later than the middle of May
or earlier than the first of April. Where large quantities of the
yolks are used, the whites may be evaporated and kept in glass bottles
or jars. Spread them out on a stoneware or granite plate and allow
them to evaporate at the mouth of a cool oven. When the mixture is
perfectly dry, put it away. This powder is capable of taking up the
same amount of water that has been evaporated from it, and may then be
used the same as fresh whites.
