WFMW- testing egg freshness

If you need to know if an egg sitting in your fridge is still fresh then I have the answer for you! This works well also if you buy farm fresh eggs because there is no "date" marked on the cartoon for how long the egg is fresh for.

1st- fill a cup with cold water.
 


2nd- place the egg in the cup and if it floats then it is no good. Throw it out. Otherwise if the egg sits on the bottom of the glass then it is fine to go.

That is a great tip and I will definitely be trying that. I am sure there are a few bad eggs around here :)

Great tip! It actually floats because the older the egg, the more air that builds up in it. :-)

Thanks for stopping by!
