Help: Source for pasteurized eggs? (OC)
Help! I need a source for eggs pasteurized in the shell. I want to make a decent eggnog using raw egg. Ordinarily, I'd risk it with fresh regular eggs. However, I have a dinner party and some older folks will probably drink the stuff. I live in HB, but am willing to make a reasonable drive to find a source for usable eggs.
Alternatively, I could buy pasteurized eggs in a bottle/jar, but I have no idea what measurements to use for yolk and white (the recipe is just by the egg).
Any help or advice appreciated.
I just saw these at my Vons in Santa Monica a couple months ago. Not sure of the brand, but they were in the clear plastic case instead of a cardboard carton. I wasn't quite sure if I wanted pasteurized eggs (I usually buy the omega enriched eggs) so I passed, but took note of them.
you can buy them in a carton at Restaurant Depot - you need to be a professional to buy stuff there, but they also have a side called Jetro Cash and Carry which might just require a signup (not sure). the cartons have the equivalent measurements on them. i am pretty sure that there are several locations in the LA area, so there migh be one close to you.
Restaurant Depot is a division of Jetro, and they both require business licenses to join. (You don't have to actually be in the food industry to join, you just need the right documentation ;-)
If the OP is still looking six months after posting, then I'd suggest Smart & Final (might have it) or Canton Food (open to the public).
