How to Tell if An Egg is Good or Bad

I buy a lot of eggs.  Usually I’m grabbing about 5 dozen at a time or if I find a sale I’ll stock up and buy even more.  We don’t always go through our eggs quick enough.  Some months are quicker than others.  But since we buy so many at a time I want to ensure I’m always using a good egg.

Here’s how to tell.  Grab your sink, bowl, jar whatever and add water to it.

Place the egg in the water .  If it sinks to the bottom it’s a good egg.  If it floats to the top it’s a bad egg and shouldn’t be consumed.
