You Asked About: How To Tell A Fresh Egg

Sandy asks…

How can you tell if an egg is fresh or stale?

I know you can put an uncooked egg (complete and still in it’s shell) into a bowl of water to see if it’s fresh or not. Trouble is I can’t remember if the fresh egg sinks or if it floats??

Chas answers:

If you submerge a very fresh egg in water, it will lie on the bottom. An egg that is a week or so old will lie on the bottom but bob slightly. An egg that is three weeks or so old will balance on its small end, with the large end reaching for the sky. And a bad egg will float.
