    MG! The manual vac tool for sealing the jar lids……. Is it a quality tool? Perhaps PO can chime in too on the quality of the hand pump.

    He probably could... especially as ALL of his tools are of the highest quality.

    Now you guys knock it off! I've got more egg updates coming.

    UPDATE RE METHOD -

    You can tell from the pic what I changed.

    About 10 seconds of mixing blended them better, made for easier pouring on the trays, and the incorporated air made a difference in drying - it actually eliminated needing to break up the eggs at hour 12.

    Dozens #3 and #4 are in the dryer now: still 4 eggs per tray, push the liquid to the sides and corners. If you set up your rack and mat right next to the unit - you can lift them in without spilling.

    Here's my blender - next to 3 dozen egg flakes (the test dozen and the two dried yesterday).
    I'll powder those up in a couple hours.

    I never tried eggs but have done all sorts of vegetables and spices. A little too moist and you get mold and crap growing. But I've got things 10 years old still fine, really dry.

    I'll watch this thread, thanks MG, and test pilot PO
    The eggs are coming out fine and once MG powders them in the blender I think the consistency will be more like a regular fresh egg. At over 4 bucks for a dozen puny eggs this is turning into a great project. MG does all the work and I don't mind being the test pilot! Eating is one of my favorite hobbies! She has done her research and is a whizz in the kitchen to boot. As long as it isn't Brussel Sprouts I'll eat it.

    Finally had time to start the blender step (was a little busy yesterday, lol)

    A coffee filter worked Perfect! for the barrier between the egg powder and the lid.
    Fold in the sides, and the round bottom sets great in the widemouth jar.

    After the first powdering - we wanted to test how it worked for texture, etc, before I did the rest.
    Put 1 tablespoon in a dish, covered with 1.5 tablespoons of water, let it set for about 10 minutes.
    It felt just a little thick, so I splashed in a bit more water (not much) and it started feeling 'eggy'
    Fried it up, shared it with PO, tasted perfect, texture perfect. Just as if I'd done that with a fresh egg. YAY!

    Only 2 dozen left to process, this round.
    Might do more eggs later - first though, PO's gonna need more jerky.

    MG did a great job with the eggs. When reconstituted I couldn't tell the difference. Put cheese on it and slap it between some toast and you have an egg sandwich or, mix it up a little in the frying pan and you have scrambled eggs. You can even make an omelet. Now, if she could only make them sunny side up.

    You need to do a video on this , start to finish. I'd give it a shot but egg messes are not good...

    Happy Thanksgiving to You and PO!

    Egg messes? Dunno what those are, lol
    I wish I could do a video - to show how simple this is.
    Maybe PO could do one with his fancy phone and then figure out how to load it up. LOL

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family as well, MT.
