Is It Okay to Eat This Egg?

Ever wonder if that egg hiding in the back of the fridge is still edible? Here’s a quick and easy test from our friends at Epicurious.

First, place the egg into a bowl of cold water. The water level should be about two times higher than the egg.

Then, observe what the eggs does. If it sinks, it’s a keeper! Fresh eggs will immediately sink to the bottom.

Slightly older eggs will lie on the bottom but bob slightly. Older – but still edible – eggs will balance on the smallest end. Bad eggs float, so if it sits on the surface, toss it out!

Remember, eating a bad egg can cause food poisoning – so be safe and eat healthy!
