Break Eggs in a Separate Bowl

Don't let one rotten egg spoil your recipe. Always break each egg into a small dish before adding it to the other ingredients. As you break each egg, check it out then pour it into the mix before you crack another one. This way, if you discover a bad egg, you will only have wasted one egg rather than several eggs or even an entire batch of ingredients.

Very good tip! Have been doing this for many years. It only took one time of having to discard eggs to make me start this practice.

How to test if an egg is fresh

Firstly, fill a fairly deep bowl with water and carefully lower the egg into the water.

A very fresh egg will immediately sink to the bottom and lie flat on its side. This is because the air cell within the egg is very small. The egg should also feel quite heavy.

As the egg starts to lose its freshness and more air enters the egg, it will begin to float and stand upright. The smaller end will lie on the bottom of the bowl, whilst the broader end will point towards the surface. The egg will still be good enough to consume, however, if the egg fully floats in the water and does not touch the bottom of the bowl at all, it should be discarded, as it will most likely be bad.

A bad egg will also feel extremely light in weight and give off a pungent smell.
