Egg shells take a long time to break down, so ideally they should be crushed. Not a pleasant job, unless you follow this routine:

  1. Have a baking tray lined with used or reusable baking paper ready in the oven. Whenever you use eggs, put the shells in there.
  2. When you preheat your oven, the eggshells will dry and go brittle, making them very easy to crush.
  3. Put them in a jar until you have a few more.
  4. You can even put them in the food processor and get them chopped up finely.

There you go – it’s not that hard! Time to get set up.
