The preserving of eggs in the home from the spring when they are so plentiful until fall and winter when they are so scarce, is by no means a new practice. Only a very few, however, are taking advantage of this practice and the full benefits are by no means being derived. During the past winter the high cost of eggs has brought this fact out very forcibly in some of the rural districts as well as in the larger cities where the price for a considerable time was from 50 to 60 cents a dozen and only a limited supply could be had at that price. The numerous inquires for information on egg preserving during the past few months have emphasized the necessity for the publication of this circular.
