You know that half carton of over-date eggs sitting in the back of your fridge? They might not have gone off yet! Today, Chef Brad show us a simple trick to check if your eggs are still fresh.
Hello, I'm Chef Brad, Executive Chef for Residence Dining at UBC Food Services, and today I'm going to show you how to check if your eggs are fresh.
So there's a very simple technique to ensure that the eggs you are about to cook are fresh. It's as simple as filling a glass full of water and seeing whether or not the egg sinks or floats.
An egg that is no longer good - that you don't want to eat - will sty floating on the top of the water, whereas an egg that is fresh - and you can cook and not have any concerns with - will sink to the bottom.
And that's how you check if an egg is fresh!
