How Fresh Your Egg is?
Can’t remember if an egg is fresh or hard boiled? Follow these simple steps to test whether those eggs in your refrigerator are fresh enough to eat:
Step 1- Fill a bowl with cold water. Use enough water to cover the egg when it’s standing on one end. An egg’s interior air pocket enlarges with time, allowing a simple float test to be used to test an egg’s freshness.
Step 2- Gently place the egg into the water.
Step 3- Does the egg float in the water? That’s a sign that the egg is old and should be discarded.
Step 4- Does the egg stand on one end? It’s not fresh, but not yet old. It’s safe to eat.
Step 5- Does the egg lie on one side on the bottom of the bowl? This signals a very fresh egg. It is safe to eat
