How to freeze eggs

  1. Eggs can be frozen raw, as long as they are shelled first. Cooked eggs don’t freeze well.
  2. Crack the eggs and tip them into a container to freeze them in, you could use a muffin tin for individual eggs or, if you are freezing the whites and yolks separately, freeze them in batches (remember to label how many are in each batch). Whisk the eggs lightly to help the freeze better, if you like.
  3. Freeze for a couple of hours and then slide the frozen blocks into bags or containers.

Frozen eggs will keep for three months in the freezer, separated egg whites will keep for up to six months. For a fabulous Florentine pizza, terrific tortillas and frittatas, get stuck into our favourite egg recipes.
