Raw Eggs and how to pasteurize them

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHave you Noticed? I use ALOT Of eggs in my recipes. (Check out my Yummy Breakfast Shakes Recipes) And some of them are raw. This is frightening to alot of people, and I WAS not one of them! Until I had eaten just one too many raw eggs and now can’t stomach them :P So, I went out and spent the money on some pasteurized raw egg whites. Kinda pricey and hard to find, but worth it when you have SO many recipes using them! Check out the little pictures below in this post or the drop down menu above for more great GF, SF, Low Carb recipes :)

THEN I found this article on pasteurizing your own eggs, this is SO EASY! In hot water at 145 for 4 mins, and they come out perfect! :) No tummy upsets yet, with all the yummy breakfast shakes we’re eating!

Have YOU tried this? I have tried making egg powder stuff, that is NASTY! Just sat in my freezer for a few months till I tossed them :P THIS though, totally works!

Thanks to Baking Bites for this quote. Click link for full article :)

“To pasteurize large eggs, place them in a saucepan filled with water and fitted with a digital thermometer. Turn on the heat and bring the water up to 140F.
Keep the water temperature at 140F for 3 minutes (and no more than 142F), reducing the heat on the burner if necessary. Remove eggs from hot water and rinse thoroughly with cold water.
Store in the refrigerator until needed or use right away.
Jumbo sized eggs need to 5 minutes in 140F water.”

My sister in law owns a bunch of chickens- all different kinds, she just loves them! Living in the country this is alot more possible for her than it is for me. One day we might move to the country, THEN I will consider getting some chickens too! We buy her some seed every year and she supplies us with the best eggs you will EVER have, free range and all! :)

    me, and eggs what can I say, they are my down fall in life. I could eat them all day long every day. Doctor says it is not good to do that though! LOL When my tummy has been upset over something and I can not eat but must because of diabetes then I have my husbands scrambled eggs. Don’t ask me how he does them but they are amazing!! They have just a hint of sweetness to them and the texture is like melting butter in your mouth. He won’t them often for me only when I am sick. In turn though, when I am able I have to make him a batch of pickled eggs! LOL Have a great day everyone!
