How fresh are your eggs?

I had a traumatic rotten eggs experience recently at the Tesco supermarket. You can read about it on my personal blog.

So, now I have this little phobia whenever I knock an egg. Expecting it to explode with green slime and stinks my whole self and house. I found this little tips while searching for ideas on how to decorate Easter eggs and wish to share with everyone.

How Fresh Are Your Eggs?

To make sure your eggs are fresh, put raw egg in a glass of water. If it lays on the bottom, it’s fresh. If it is on the bottom, but the small end is up, it’s still fine. If it is floating in the middle, but not on top, it should be safe, but not very fresh. If it floats, throw it away, it’s a rotten egg.

Note that if eggs had been moisten with water, they will not last long and spoil easily. Therefore, please do not put all the eggs you just bought from the supermarket into the water to test them. 🙂
