Want creamy yolks, whites with bite and eggy-flavoured egg? It’s all in the freshness.
Don’t know if your eggs are fresh? Put them to the test!
Fill a bowl or jar with water and gently place the egg on the water’s surface.
If the egg sinks to the bottom, it’s fresh!
If it floats to the top, it’s not!
Crack your egg onto a plate. If the yolk is sitting high, and the albumen (egg white) is well-defined, it’s fresh!
If the yolk is flat and the albumen is runny, it’s not!
Get yourself one of these. Or become friends with someone who has one. Alternatively, ask a farmer when their eggs were laid.
Store eggs in the fridge; one day on the counter ages an egg as much as one week in the fridge.
