How to Store Eggs
Proper storage of eggs can affect both quality and safety.
- The best way to store eggs for long-term storage is in a sealed container at a temperature of 35-40 degrees Fahrenheit. Farm fresh eggs can be kept for up to months without deterioration using this method.
- Use hard-cooked eggs (in the shell or peeled) within 1 week after cooking.
- Use frozen eggs within 1 year. Eggs should not be frozen in their shells. To freeze whole eggs, beat yolks and whites together. Egg whites can also be frozen by themselves.
- Refrigerate leftover cooked egg dishes and use within 3 to 4 days. When refrigerating a large amount of a hot egg-containing leftover, divide it into several shallow containers so it will cool quickly.
