Dried Eggs

During the war, we would sometimes have a real treat – Dried Eggs!

It was a powder, in a dark brown box, the outside of which was coated in something reminiscent of candle-wax. The box prominently displayed the Stars and Stripes clearly showing the origin of them – the lifeline from The States, paid for by a dreadful loss of life on the high seas.

I have clear memories of my eldest sister, Jeanne, mixing the powder, and pouring it into the frying pan, over a slice of bread. This, of course, was to ‘make it go further’!!! It was much like an egg omelette. When cooked, Jeanne would cut the thing into 4 portions, and we would have one each. A real treat indeed!
