How to tell if a Egg is gone bad

Have you ever had eggs’ at home for a while and not sure if you can consumer the egg or if its gone bad? This is a simple test that you can do to find out if the egg is gone bad … or not

Place the egg into a bowl of cold water. The water level should be about 2 times higher than the egg

Observe what the egg does.

  • Fresh eggs will sink to the bottom of the bowl and probably lie on their sides.
  • Slightly older eggs (about one week) will lie on the bottom but bob slightly.
  • If the egg balances on its smallest tip, with the large tip reaching for the top, it’s probably close to three weeks old.
  • Eggs that float at the surface are bad and should not be consumed.

Pretty easy ha! Make sure you check if you are not sure!
