How To Determine If An Egg Is Fresh

IMG_6278

Have you ever cracked an egg and it is bad?  Here’s a sure way not to crack a bad egg again.

Fill a bowl with cold water and put egg in water.

1. VERY FRESH

A very fresh egg will sink to the bottom and lay on its side.

2. WEEK OLD

Week old eggs will rest on the bottom but the fat end of the egg will rise up slightly

3. THREE-WEEK OLD

Three week old eggs will be balanced on the pointy end with the fat end sticking up.

4. BAD EGGS

Old eggs will be floating, bobbing along the surface of the water.  These floating eggs should be tossed as they aren’t any good to eat.
