How To Keep Eggs Fresh? -Tuesday's Tip

Here I am back with another useful and simple kitchen tip. Well we all love eggs, and we usually buy 10-12 eggs together-but the question is How to keep them fresh? I will share some basic tips with you today that will keep eggs fresh for 4- 5 weeks.

Should you refrigerate eggs?
Always keep the eggs in the cardboard box (the box in which you get them).Eggs will last longer in the fridge, provided you don't put them in the door. The cold does make them last, but constant changes in temperature can make them go off quicker (we open door again and again). They should be kept nearer the back of the fridge, where the temperature is more constant. For cooking, its better to use room temperature eggs, so get them out in good time.

How to check if the egg is fresh or not?
Immerse the egg in a pan of cool salted water. If it sinks, it is fresh; if it rises to the surface, it is old and should not be cooked.  

I hope these tips were useful :-) Next time do not be scared to buy dozen of eggs.
