Simple Trick to Tell if an Egg Has Gone Bad
Unlike most food expiration dates, federally graded eggs are safe 3-5 weeks after their expiration date. A little trick to see if your eggs are still fresh or not: just fill small pan with water:
- If the eggs sink completely, then they are still good.
- If they bob around below the surface, they are still good but should be used soon.
- If they float sideways to the top, then those eggs are bad and should be tossed immediately!
