Bake Eggshells for Compost

I put eggshells in a tray at the bottom of the oven. They get baked and brittle every time you use the oven. Just keep adding to the tray until it is full. Crush the eggshells by hand or use a pastry roller to reduce them to very small pieces or use a grinder - they are now ready to add to the compost.


Ever seen compost with large eggshells? - it is horrible to use - certainly not suitable for seedlings. I am a volunteer 'Compost Champion' for Somerset, England.

I too try and make use of vegetable peels and egg shells to make compost but I have never tried baking the egg shells. I should surely try them out.

I use eggshells in my garden too, but I only wash them out and save them in a paper bag until I have enough to crush and use. How does the baking process make them better? And do you get any smell in the oven as they bake over and over again? I would consider doing this if I thought it was better somehow. Please tell me more.

I bake them. They don't make your oven smell. Also they don't go bad in keeping if you haven't got rid of every bit of egg.
