How To Check Eggs For Freshness
Ever wonder if your eggs are still OK to use even if past the sell by date? Here is how to check eggs for freshness!
[Tweet “Don’t eat eggs that float!”]
Place the egg into a bowl or pan of cold water. The water level should be twice (2 times) the depth of the egg.
Fresh eggs will stay on the bottom of the pan and will probably lie on their sides.
Slightly older (but still good to use) eggs (one- two weeks) will stay on the bottom but will tilt slightly towards the surface.
If the egg stands up on the smaller end, with the larger end reaching for the top, it’s probably close to three weeks old.
Eggs that float at the surface are bad and should not be consumed!
