For The Heavy Packers – Old School Throwback
While I love to use dried eggs when on trips (and they have gotten a lot better in taste over the years!) I can say that there are certain recipes where fresh eggs just simply taste better.
So after loading up your large 2 Liter non-stick pot, cooking oil and large spoon for stirring you start thinking about those eggs. So how do you carry them? Well…you can always cut down the cardboard box they come in. You will need to pad it though as one end will be open (a serrated knife such as a steak knife cuts the box quickly). Another way is to wrap them a couple times in paper towels and tuck into your mug tightly packed. Or you could go old school and get one of these:
Ironically while the larger egg carriers that Coghlan’s produces are clunky, the 2 egg holder isn’t. It is a simple design, tuck 2 eggs in, close the lid and it snaps tight. It is even recyclable down the road. At $2.25 at REI it is also cheap. It easily fits into a mug or small pot and allows you to carry those tasty eggs without breaking, protecting all sides. And at 1 ounce…well, of all the gear needed to make those tasty meals it actually is pretty light 😉
