Eggs (To Preserve). Prepare a box or cask of a sufficient size to contain the eggs to be preserved. Let it be quite dry; spread a layer of wood-ashes about two inches in depth over the bottom, and upon this place the eggs on their side, as many as the space will admit, but be careful that they do not touch one another. Then throw in more ashes and form another bed, and lay down the eggs as before. In this way the cask or box may be filled, and if set by in a dry cool place, the eggs will keep sweet all through the scarce season.
