** How to Tell If Eggs are Still Good **

By Erin Huffstetler, Guide

Have a carton of eggs that have passed their use-by date? Here's how to
test to see if they are still good:

1. Fill a bowl with cold water and place your first egg inside. If the egg
sinks to the bottom, it's fresh. If the egg sinks to the bottom, but stands
on its point, it's still good but needs to be used soon. If the egg floats
to the top, it needs to be discarded.

2. Repeat with the rest of the eggs in your carton.

*Why This Works*

Since egg shells are porous, overtime the liquid in the egg evaporates and
is replaced by outside air. This results in more buoyant eggs.

Note: Always discard any eggs that have an odd appearance or odor.
