Eggs

How far past the expiration date is it safe to use eggs?

Re: Eggs

Hmmmm.... I have heard that how to tell if an egg is still fresh is to stick one in a glass of water. Fresh eggs will sink and stale eggs will float.

Re: Eggs

I didn't even know they expired until like 2 months ago!! Seriously I keep tons of eggs sometimes and I know I eat them when they're expired, I don't even keep track of it. I've never gotten sick from eating them!! If you're worried though I'd boil a bunch up before getting rid of them!

Re: Eggs

You'll know whether or not you should use it when you crack it open!

My mom says she uses hers for up to 2 weeks past the date. I usually use all the ones in a pack before I get to that point, anyway.
