I give this book 10 out of 10 acorns.  How to Preserve Eggs by Leigh Tate is another of her books in the series "The Little Series of How - Tos from 5 acres and a dream
This 33 page book is full of ways to keep eggs, especially when the girls are off the lay.  This is the updated Sep 2020 version, being originally published in 2014.  
Practical is the first word that comes to mind about this book.  It is logical and easy to read, firstly as a whole book but then very user friendly as a reference book down the track.
Leigh makes a point of safety with respect to handling eggs, what to look out for as well as safe storage.  Eggs for some time have been known as a source of food poisoning but IMO, this has been well addressed.

It was amazing to find out that unwashed eggs can keep in a refrigerator for seven months. This is certainly a way to over winter an assured egg supply.  The key parts are how, why it works and then recipes for using the eggs.  For someone seriously thinking about off grid living or being a homesteader. This is the egg book of egg books and a must have on the shelf book.

Congratulations Leigh of another fantastic reference book
