    So I'm trying to get my food prep for the week out of the way...

    I'm wondering how long eggs, prescrambled, uncooked, and stored in a mason jar, in the fridge will remain safe. I searched the web, but could only find info on cooked eggs storage life...

    Any ideas?

    Are these cracked eggs or eggs still in the shell?

    Eggs still in the shell should last up to three weeks refrigerated, cracked eggs will last 3-4 days refrigerated.

    I would think they would be fine as long as you have them sealed up well. Least for a week.
    Maybe strollingbones knows for sure

    These would be pre scrambled. It would be a time saver for me to just be able to open the lid, and pour them into the pan. Not as much clean up. I'm trying to streamline my weeks food prep.

    I would say no more than a week as long as it's sealed immediately in the mason jar with very little air left in the jar. Eggs out of the shell and loosely covered will last about a day if that and the biggest issue isn't the egg spoiling but the egg picking up every odor that's in the fridge and the rapid loss of it's natural moisture, a problem you won't have with them sealed in a jar. As for why you want to do this I'm not sure as cracking eggs open and scrambling them takes less than 30 seconds probably closer to 10 seconds.
