If you aren't sure how fresh your eggs are, here's an easy way to test them.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 1 minute
What You Need
• Eggs
• Bowl or Deep Container
• Water
Here's How:
• Fill a deep bowl or pan with enough cold tap water to cover an egg.
• Place the egg in the water.
• If the egg lies on its side on the bottom, the air cell within is small and it's very fresh.
• If the egg stands up and bobs on the bottom, the air cell is larger and it isn't quite as fresh.
• If the egg floats on the surface, it it should be discarded.
• A very fresh egg out of the shell will have an overall thick white which doesn't spread much and the yolk will stand up.
• Grade AA eggs are the highest grade available. They cost more than other grades, but may be a good choice because of their high quality and longer shelf life.
• Store eggs in the refrigerator small end down in their original carton.
• Eggs which are a week or so old are easier to peel than very fresh eggs when cooked in the shell.
