The traditional idea of ​​storing eggs in the fridge is the norm in many cultures. But what if there was a better way to keep eggs fresh and safe for a long time? Let’s look at methods that were used long before refrigerators became a common part of our kitchens.

The myth of cold

Many people believe that the refrigerator is the best place to store eggs to keep them fresh. This notion is rooted mainly in the fear of bacteria such as salmonella. However, according to tradition and some studies, eggs kept outside the refrigerator under the right conditions can stay fresh much longer.

Alternative storage methods

One of the proven methods is to store eggs in lime water. This process involves immersing the eggs in a solution of lime and water, which creates a barrier against oxygen and bacteria, greatly extending the life of the eggs. The lime water keeps the shell firm and impervious, which is key to preserving freshness.

Health aspects of egg storage

Storing eggs outside the refrigerator can also have health benefits. Eggs preserved in lime water have a more stable shell, which minimizes the risk of bacterial contamination. However, it is important to ensure that all materials and methods used are safe and approved for food use to avoid any health risks.

Where and how to store eggs

The ideal place to store eggs should be dry, cool and out of direct light. Cellars or dark, cool pantries are ideal. It is important to maintain a constant temperature, as fluctuations can lead to condensation and thus a breakdown of the protective barrier of the shell.

Changing habits can be challenging, but in the case of egg storage, it can make a big difference in extending their shelf life and reducing the risk of food waste. Experimenting with alternative storage methods can be not only effective, but also an interesting return to the traditional techniques of our ancestors.
