EGG SHELLS..When I have left over egg shells, I save them in a #10 can, and when I have enough I place them on a cookie sheet and bake them for just a few minutes to kill any diseases or bacterias, and crush them up, place them in a zip lock bag, and add the bits to bird feed, Birds need calcium for their egg laying to prevent egg binding. which is fatal. I also use the egg bits in my garden for the added calcium for the plant growth. Boiled eggs don't need to be sterilized.-by Cheryl Firth-
If your Brown sugar has gotten hard, place a slice of bread in the bag and seal it, after a few hours it will be soft again. there is a piece of terra cotta that stores sell that you can keep in the opened bags to keep them from drying out.
