testing eggs

Tests For Fresh Eggs
Written by Anthony Vieira Da Cruz

The following tests may be used to determine whether eggs are fresh:

◦The shell of a fresh egg is rough, not smooth and shiny.
◦A reasonably fresh egg will sink in salt water made by dissolving 1/3 cup of salt in 1 quart of water while a stale egg will float.
◦When an egg is candled, that is, held against an opening in a shield around a bright light, a fresh egg will appear clear inside and the air cell will not be larger than a nickel
◦A fresh egg makes no sound when it is shaken.

Hope this information is useful to you :)
