Has your egg been sitting on the counter for far too long and you are afraid it has gone bad? Well. It’s always a bit of mystery, isn’t it? To identify if the egg is rotten or not
Here is indeed a TESTED AND EASY METHOD to identify if your egg is good to go before cracking it open.
The FLOAT TEST:
• Fill your bowl with cold water and place your eggs in it. • If it sinks to the bottom on it’s side, it’s a perfectly fresh egg. • If it stands in an upright position at the bottom of the bowl. They are a few weeks old and perfect for a hard-boiled egg. • If the egg floats on the surface of the water, they have gone bad and DO NOT use such eggs.
The PLATE TEST:
If you already cracked an egg and then thinking about if it’s safe to eat, try on this technique. • If it's fresh, the yolk should be bright yellow or orange, and the white shouldn't spread much • If it’s not, the white spreads out a lot. The SNIFF TEST • You can also sniff your eggs, fresh eggs don’t have any smell at all. • Even slightly rotten eggs will have a very strong, distinct smell you'll notice right away.
