and when I start wondering why there are no eggs in the nests, I start hunting and always find a pile like this. Eggs are a precious commodity to me............I don't want to throw these away.......and
I don't want to make a 50 mile trip into town for a dozen of eggs.........so the question always is..............
how can you tell a good egg.........from a bad one??
I found a true method that always works.
Fresh eggs will sink to the bottom of the bowl and probably lie on their sides.
Slightly older eggs (about one week) will lie on the bottom but bob slightly.
If the egg balances on its smallest tip, with the large tip reaching for the top, it's probably close to three weeks old.
Eggs that float at the surface are bad and should not be consumed.
This way, I can always be certain that I have good eggs to use for my baking.
Speaking of baking..........I have a wonderful buttermilk biscuit recipe that makes tall and fluffy biscuits.
