Eggs are great for many the garden and compost. A few years ago – before the kitchen was redone, I tried this and it worked great. I even still had the labeled jar on a shelf!
I came across an article that reminded me that crushed egg shells in the actual plants helped add calcium. So i put out a way paper and started collecting them again.
I found 2 different recipes – one suggested a longer time at a lower temp, the other higher temp for a shorter time.
- Bake the eggshells to kill any potential bacteria including salmonella.
- Preheat oven to 400°F
- Bake your eggshells on a baking sheet for 10 minutes.
- This kills bacteria, and also make the shells more brittle and easier to crush into small pieces
- After shells are baked, place in blender and crush to a nice small size.
This is a great way to get shells in a good size to help the garden.
If you try it, let me know what you think
