FAQ Cookery How can I tell if an egg is still fresh

How can I tell if an egg is still fresh ?

Put the egg (in its shell) into a bowl of water. If it stays on the bottom, it is fresh, if it lifts slightly it’s a week or two old but still perfectly fresh to eat, if it rises to the top of the water it has gone off and must not be eaten. The reason for this is that egg shells are porous and as they age the amount of air inside increases.
