How do I know if an egg has gone off?
To test whether a raw egg is OK to eat, place it in a tall glass of water. If it’s fresh it will sink, if not, it will float. Simple!
Should eggs be stored in the fridge?
Yes, eggs should be stored in the refrigerator in their carton to reduce water loss through the shell. The storage life for eggs is determined by the storage temperatures during distribution. Most shops do not keep eggs under refrigeration and, depending how long the eggs have been stored at room temperature, the potential shelf life will be affected.
How can I tell a raw egg from hard-boiled?
A hard-boiled egg will spin easily on a hard surface such as a bench top, whereas a raw egg will wobble, then stop spinning. This is caused by the egg yolk inside being either cooked or uncooked. If it’s uncooked it will move around inside the egg and make it unsteady if you spin it, but if it’s cooked it will anchor the egg and allow it to spin.
And cracked eggs?
Chuck ’em out: any eggs that have cracks in their shells can contain bacteria that may be harmful.
