I have used eggs that were 6 weeks past the sell by date, and they were perfectly fine. (12/04/2009)

That all depends. Unfortunately, egg companies have been caught numerous times repackaging returned eggs that look OK.

The old standbys are to fill a container with cold water and carefully drop the egg into the water. If it lays on its side or the wide end; it's supposed to be fresh. If it rests more on the pointy end; it's supposed to be an older egg.

You can also crack the egg. If the white is thicker and stays mounded/clingy to the yolk; it's fresher. If it runs thin and spreads out faster; it's older. If you buy eggs on sale, you can always crack them and freeze them if needed. (12/05/2009)

stilltasty.com is a wonderful site that tells how long most food is good after expiration date when kept in fridge, freezer, or on the shelf. (12/07/2009)
