How do you know if you've got a good egg? Eggs scare me. No joke, I don't like surprises! I'm always afraid I'm going to find something I don't want to inside of one. Is that weird? My Mom tells me, "you would KNOW if an egg was bad"! Honestly, I would rather not find out after cracking it. Typically they're good for about three weeks after you buy them. Yes you can go by the expiration date, but if you don't have the carton on hand..here is a handy tip!
You could find out how fresh an egg is by dropping it into a bowl of water.
-If it sinks... it's good.
-If it sinks but stands straight up on its point...it's good but not for much longer.
-If it floats...it's a bad egg...get rid of that sucker.
