A couple of month back I read somewhere online that you could check the eggs in your fridge to see if they are rotten.
I needed this tip. I bring my eggs home and remove them from the carton and place them in a plastic container in the fridge. What was that expiration date?
My husband laughs at me because I focus too much on expiration and best by dates. Especially with milk. It drives him nuts. He is always saying, do you really think that milk knows it needs to expire just because the estimated date on the jug says so? He smells it and we carry on. This honestly does not happen too often, with all these boys we go through milk pretty quickly.
But eggs. I always wonder if I am cracking a bad egg. And I can obsess too much about it thinking I smell something or it looks weird.
I do the same thing with chicken.
Here is a simple trick for eggs that I have been using and it works!
Take a glass of water and before cracking the egg drop it in the glass.
If the eggs sinks- it is still good.
If the egg floats- it is bad.
As I have read more about this online I have learned that eggs are very porous. As they age they fill with gas which makes them go bad.
Gross, I know.
Now, go test the eggs in your fridge. It is like a fun science experiment.
