Has anybody tried dehydrating hard-boiled eggs?

Did it work?

I am going to do my upcoming 9 days of backpacking on the PCT stove-free and am looking at way to add to other food to bump them up, and I like eggs in cold salads.

Maybe an experiment is in order today as both the kids are sick.

I have lots of that. Cute little packets.

Eggs work well with potato salad.

I am trying right now. Should have my own answer tomorrow. ;-)

Well it works, kinda.

I dehydrated just some chopped whites. (Tossed the yolks)  I did them at 120 for 9 hours and they ended up looking like small pieces of yellow-tinged glass.

The problem is the next day I rehydrated them and it took over an hour just to get them to where they could be chewed. Not worth it.

Now we know. ;-)

That does not sound like a good, food safe, idea to me...

Well the idea was to do it right before a hike.

But I don't think the pieces would work in a food saver bag without popping it anyway.

I don't plan to use it. I will just carry an egg if I want one.

My daughter sure enjoyed watching though.

Good for you for doing a real world test Ray.

Girlfriend was telling me something about powered eggs, about how they had to do some things that hydrogenated the cholesterol or something like that, turning a good thing bad.

Like you, we are going to pack fresh eggs.

Thanks Arizona,

I looked at the way you make dehydrated powdered eggs and that scares me to death. Just buy freeze-dried or pack them in the plastic holders we used all the time in the 70's and 80's.

Man, I have been hitting it hard for this trip trying new ideas and combinations. (Probably nothing that S hasn't written about a million times if I just came over here more often.) My daughter loves seeing the dehydrator in action. I think next month I am going to let her make some jerky, which she loves, and her favorite fruit. She is already really getting into cooking and this will be a new step for her.

Saw a new sign by a mailbox about a mile down the road from me: "Fresh Eggs".  Have to stop and get some unwashed for camping.
