  • Ana W: Excellent
  • Irene G: Thank You for showing how to check for freshness...never knew there was an easy way to check...does the egg need to be at room temp to check? I usually store eggs in the fridge?

  • Barbara D: Very timely and easy to remember lesson. I've been buying eggs from a farm this summer supplying my own cartons. When in the fridge I cNt remember which I brought home last. Now I'll be able to tell!
  • Manish C: Great tip
  • Judy : Are you aware that if you keep you freshly laid eggs in the refrigerator, or in a cool cellar, or basement that is not heated. In a basement your eggs will keep for weeks, or even months, depending on how moist and cool the area is. In a refrigerator they keep for months, if in cartons like the ones you buy eggs in at the store. If you want to be able to hard boil eggs, kept in a refrigerator, they need to be around 2 weeks old to be able to peel them without tearing the egg apart.
    • How I Pinch A Penny: Thanks Judy! I was aware of these facts but other students may not be. I hope they read the comments and learn from your knowledge. Thanks so much for sharing! Sarah

  • Marshall R: I had no idea there was a test. Thank you soooooooooo much. I've probably thrown out hundreds of dollars over my 77 years, but I will pass this information to my kids. Thanks again.
  • shirley p: Good, floating them in water. Get it
  • Joyce D: Were the eggs you left on the counter for two weeks sterile as in no rooster? My eggs are fertile and therefore if I leave them on the counter they will begin to incubate so I have to put them in the frig within a day. Sometimes I leave them in the frig too long so I like the idea of floating them to check for freshness, I've stood and cracked egg after egg looking for a fresh egg. Would have been simpler to float them. Thank you.
  • Roslyn J: Thank you. I have chickens and often get the old and new eggs mixed up in storage. I can now check.
