SO, YOU’RE NOT SURE whether the eggs you have in the fridge, which may or may not have passed their expiration date, are still OK to eat. What do you do?
Well, there’s a very simple lifehack you should remember because it will always help to ensure your eggs are safe to eat.
Sink ‘em and See
- The eggs that are still good will lay at the bottom of the bowl on their sides.
- The ones that stand up but still remain at the bottom of the bowl are still good but probably should be eaten very soon.
- The ones that float have gone bad and should be thrown out immediately.
The reason they float is that over time, air builds up inside the shells because they are porous. So the longer it’s stored, the more air it’ll absorb.
