I’m a baker so I use eggs like women change outfits before going on a first date so I rarely have to test my eggs but this little trick is a lifesaver if you are not sure whether your eggs are still fresh or not!
Easy enough; take a deep bowl ( about 4 inches deep) and fill it with water. One at a time, put your eggs in the water. If they sink quickly to the bottom and lie on their sides, they are still very fresh. If they stand straight in the water but still touch the bottom, they are not as fresh but still can be used (I don’t suggest to use them in pastries or any baked goods though). If they float on top of the water, it’s a no go so throw them out.
As easy as that!
