I picked up several packages of “no-name” little weenies and two Hillshire Farms smoked sausage to try your recipe. I did the eggs last week, one more week before I crack them open!
Great! I hope you like them. I just finished off a jar of eggs and smokies, now got to make some more!

All this talk about "water glass" really confuses me. Back in the 60's I worked for a company that did repair of large cast iron components including diesel engine heads as well as transmission components etc. We used a liquid called "water glass" as a glue/sealer when installing repairs that had to bond and/or seal against coolant leakage. So my question is whether there is any relation between the two "water glasses"? Anyone have a clue?

Maybe they meant water "glazed"?

I had the same confusion, back in the day, water glass was sodium silicate, i think it was. Used like you indicate and also for sealing potable concrete water tanks.

That is the stuff used during Obama’s “Cash For Clunkers” to permanently ruin perfectly good engines.

in this usage, it refers to either pickling like (hydrated lime) or, less often, isinglass (fish bladder extract).

It sounds like the water glass for sealing eggs and sealing mechanical components is the same thing.
