How to Make Egg Freshness Test 101

Step-by-Step

  1. * If the egg sinks to the bottom of the bowl, then lays flat on it’s side, this means the egg very fresh and SAFE to use.
  2. * If the egg goes to the bottom and stands, the egg is a few weeks old but still good to eat, but don’t postpone too long as it will go bad within 3-4 days…. However, when in doubt, throw the egg out!!
  3. * If the egg goes to the bottom then float to the surface, this means the egg is no longer fresh or safe to consume, so PLEASE DISCARD.
  4. INTERESTING FACT: To tell if an egg is "raw" or "hard-cooked", spin it! If the egg spins easily, it is hard-cooked and when you stop a hard-boiled egg it just stops. But if the egg wobbles, it is raw. Also, when you touch the raw egg it stops, but if you let go again quickly it will start moving again.
