- First you want to be sure to always check the expiration date on the side of the cartoon and intend on using all of the eggs by that date.
- If you buy eggs from a market where there may not be a date on them you can hold the egg up to a bright source of light and check for an air bubble at the round part of the egg. A smaller bubble indicates a fresher egg.
- If you have eggs that are questionable about being fresh enough to eat you can do the cold water test. The freshest egg will sink and remain flat, the older the egg the pointed end will begin to tilt upwards, if it float it is time to throw that one out.
