Food Hack #102: An egg-cellent idea

The humble, wonderful egg
I love eggs. They are one of the most versatile foodstuffs that I know. I am saddened when I hear that people have egg allergies or intolerances because there are so many wonderful things, both sweet and savoury, that you can make out of them - from whipped meringues to the humble egg and bacon sandwich; from poached eggs on crumpets to spicy frittatas.

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.
