How to store quail eggs

We store fresh quail eggs
Quail eggs should be refrigerated after purchase. Please note that even in the store, packages with quail eggs are in rooms ventilated by cold air. Before you put the package in the basket, look at the day of sorting – as a rule, the expiration date officially begins from this day, so the closer this date is to today, the better. It is better to open the package with quail eggs and make sure of the quality of the product: even though the eggs in the package are separated from each other by the sides of the cell, there are broken ones. Also, keep in mind that smaller eggs are stored less than large ones.
We store boiled quail eggs
Fully boiled quail eggs are best kept in their shells – they will keep perfectly in the refrigerator for a couple of days. It is better not to store for longer – the eggs will definitely begin to dry out and become tight. Do not store soft-boiled quail eggs for more than a few hours – a half-boiled egg is not suitable for subsequent storage.
