|The humble, wonderful egg|
Sadly there is a LOT of food waste because people throw eggs away too soon. IGNORE the date on the eggs. When I was growing up, eggs did not have a use-by date stamped on them or on the box; people could keep them in the fridge for a month or more and simply use a very simple method to see whether the egg was good to eat or not.
Get a pot and fill it nearly to the brim with water. Hot or cold, doesn't matter. If the egg SINKS - it is good to eat.
If the egg floats - it is bad to eat.
This should stop people throwing out millions of good eggs every year.
