Storing Eggs

Appears in

Store eggs in a covered container, bottom (larger) sides up for maximum freshness. Egg whites keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Unbroken yolks, covered with water or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray to prevent drying, will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Egg whites freeze perfectly and keep for at least 1 year. Store them in small containers because they should not be refrozen after thawing. It is also possible to freeze yolks. Stir in ½ teaspoon of sugar per yolk to keep them from becoming sticky after they are defrosted. (Remember to subtract this amount of sugar from any recipe in which you are using them.)
