I found the following on ehow.com and I thought it was timely for Easter:
Instructions.Step 1. Realize that you can keep eggs without refrigeration. For many years people lived without refrigeration and kept fresh eggs handy for cooking.
If you are going camping or you live on a boat that lacks refrigeration you can still take eggs along and keep them fresh for several days if you follow these steps.
Step 2 Get a jar of Vaseline and dab some on a paper towel. Lightly coat each egg with the Vaseline, so that each is shiny and no spots have been missed. You can also use shortening such as Crisco.
Step 3 Store the eggs back in the egg container and wrap the egg container with a couple of sections of newspaper and secure it with a couple large rubber bands to protect it from shock.
Store them in a cool, dry place.
In cool weather conditions you may be able to keep eggs this way for up to a month but do not use any eggs that have a funny smell or color.
I know it is serious, but the thought of someone sitting coating eggs in Vaseline tickled me!!!!
