How can you tell if an egg is fresh?

A fresh egg placed in a bowl of water will sink to the bottom, but an egg that is no longer fresh will float to the surface. This phenomenon occurs as moisture evaporates and air expands in the egg’s inner chamber over time. However, you can still eat an egg that floats, just like you can eat an egg that has passed the best-before date on the carton.

This date is an indication of how long eggs will retain their Grade A quality. An egg consumed after this date is simply less fresh but has not lost its nutritional value. Use these eggs in recipes instead.
