How To Test An Eggs Freshness Before You Crack Them

There is a popular saying that goes’’ Curiosity kills a cat.’’

But for me ,I would say,’’ Curiosity makes you discover the unknown.’’ Hahaha.. So very recently, I discovered the best way to detect a bad egg from good ones. Hum.. i hear someone saying ”Old news.” Well better late than never.

Having been away home for a while and still in the vacation mood, I just wanted to make an easy going meal I could prepare in less than 10 minutes. So I opted for Omelet and sliced bread. As I grabbed the egg.. Alas! I asked myself, would this eggs still be fresh because I know I had the eggs two weeks before my trip. So just to know if it was, I cracked one egg to see. Hum.. the smell gave it away. How could I throw all this eggs away? How can I detect the ones that are still very good ? I thought out loud.

I remembered while very young, my mum being a caterer made use of lots of eggs for the wedding cakes she baked and I remembered seeing her perform some kind of experiment with the eggs in a glass cup of water. So still curious I did my own experiment, and noticed some eggs sank down the cup of water while other eggs kept floating on the water.

My eyes lighted up in amazement as I quickly research why and soon discovered that when eggs float in a cup of water as seen in photo 1, This means that the egg has reached its prime and not  healthy to eat so straight the trash.

But If the eggs sinks down the cup of water, as seen in photo 2, its still very healthy.
