How to you tell a Egg is fresh?

How do you tell an egg is fresh before you even crack the shell? Easy!

Did you know you can test an egg and get an approximation of its age. All you need is a jug or bowl of cold water.

Gently drop the egg into the bowl of water. If it:

· Sinks to the bottom and stays there, it is about three to six days old.

· Sinks, but floats at an angle, it's more than a week old.

· Sinks, but then stands on end, it's about two weeks old. Best to use in baking Floats on the surface, there is a gas build-up inside, which shows it's past its use by date. Carefully throw the egg away being sure not to crack the shell.
