fresh egg test

Landscape (UK) - - In The Kichen -

Eggshells are very por­ous and, over time, air passes through the shell into the egg. Its shelf life di­min­ishes as more air en­ters the shell, which will also make it more buoy­ant. A sim­ple way to test for fresh­ness is to place the egg in a bowl of wa­ter. If the egg lays on its side at the bot­tom, it is still fresh. If the egg tilts at an an­gle or stands up­right on the bot­tom, it should be eaten very soon or hard-boiled. If the egg floats to the top, it is past its prime and not good for eat­ing.
